I received an anonymous IM from somebody that claimed to work for the Mobileme department from Apple. Apparently Steve Jobs cut several positions from the Mobileme project due to the bad take off, this person was one of them. I can only guess that this employee got his hands on some insider info and decided to leak it, this is my assumption. From of the look at this leaked ad, it shows a few new aspects for the touch
- Upgraded capacity to 64gb
- Wireless Sync
- External Speaker
- Cut and Paste
I see a calendar icon as a feature but don’t understand new calendar features they have implemented.
No news on when it will be launched, but interestingly enough, the file name is called “touch_ad_1030re” so maybe a late October launch? All I know is that if this leaked ad is the real deal, I will have no problem spending serious coin for this. The current 32gb is simply not enough for me and I don’t want to “pick and choose” which music to carry with me, I want my entire library with me.
I wanted more info from this person, but I was blocked via IM shortly after I received the ad. I have no idea why the person sent me the ad, maybe it was a past client of mine, just stumped. Personally, I did not want to spread the word myself and thought about contacting Macrumors.com (I eventually did) but decided to post it myself as well.
The original image size of the image is 982×555 so I apologize for the scaled down version. I have my doubts this is real simply because it’s so close to the iPhone in options, so why cut into the iPhone world so much? But then again, if this legit Apple is going to make a killing on this new Touch.
