John Markoff of the International Herald Tribune is reporting new details on Apple’s iPhone ahead of Steve Jobs keynote tomorrow at Macworld. He notes that Apple has “developed the first of the next generation of devices that are closer to personal computers in pocket form, meaning that they will easily handle music, entertainment, productivity tasks and communications on cellular and other wireless networks.”
According to Paul Mercer, a software designer and president of Iventor, a designer of software for hand-helds based in Palo Alto, California “Apple is about to touch off a nuclear war. The Nokias and the Motorola’s will have to respond.”
Markoff also cited two associates of Jobs (who chose to remain anonymous) that he was more excited about this project than he is about the Mac.
Does this information lend more credibility to the rumor that a version of OSX will be running on the Apple Phone? We should find out more at the Jobs keynote tomorrow 9:00 AM – 11:00pm (PST) / 12:00 – 3:00 (EST).
