MacWorldExpo: iPhone announcement unlikely

This is the kind of research I like to see from market analysts. Bernstein Research analyst Toni Sacconaghi put two and two together and concluded:

“Apple has not yet received FCC approval for a phone, and our analysis suggests that phones have typically become available two months after FCC approval.

It is possible that Apple could introduce the product, and set a future availability date, but we think this represents a low probability.”

And as Red Herring nicely put it – “itโ€™s not Mr. Jobs’ style [to announce products before they’re ready]”.

(Having said that, Steve did announce the iTV product whilst it was still conceptual…)

    Surely they wouldn’t put in an FCC application if they want to keep the project secret as these applications are publicly available.
