Apple is gearing up for what is expected to be an "exciting"September, where the company could launch both its next-generationiPhone, as well as smaller iPad, according to people in theTaiwanese supply chain. Analyst Brian White with Topeka Capital Markets is in Taipei thisweek, meeting with local contacts in the supply chain, andattending the 2012 Computex Show that is expected to see 120,000visitors. While speaking with his supply chain sources, he pickedup word that Apple is set to have an "exciting" September. Specifically, he expects Apple's next-generation iPhone is morelikely to launch in the month of September, rather than October.Last year, the iPhone 4S debuted in October , which was a few months later than the iPhone launch window thatApple had utilized in prior years. People in the Taiwanese supply chain also discussed with White thebelief that the next iPhone will feature a unibody aluminum casingmanufactured by Foxconn. |
However, White also said his industrycontact was "skeptical" about the prospect of Apple using materialfrom Liquidmetal Technologies, an amorphous metal that Apple has exclusive rights to in consumer electronicproducts. Last week, a number of parts allegedly from Apple's next iPhonebegan to surface online, and one of them showed what appeared to bea largely aluminum back with small pieces of glass at the top and bottom of the device.The component also suggested the next iPhone will be slightlytaller, to accommodate a larger 4-inch screen, and would also seethe headphone jack moved to the bottom of the device. White also believes that Apple could unveil a new iPad "mini" inSeptember. Numerous recent reports have suggested that Apple hasbeen experimenting with a smaller 7.85-inch iPad that would pack in the same 1,024-by-768-pixel screen resolutionas the first-generation iPad and iPad 2, allowing applications torun without modification and for the device to be branded a Retinadisplay.
Topeka Capital Markets has a 12-month price target of $1,111 forAAPL stock. White believes Apple's current valuation does notreflect the growth the company has delivered in recent years, norfuture growth prospects.
