Apparently, according to Cnet.com, Apple is set to reveal a brand new product this year as said by a French designer. As we only have very few details, the designer has said that he has been working with Apple on this new project that will be a creation of a “revolutionary” product that may be released in about eight months.
As this man was speaking with a French radio station and also a French newspaper, Le Figaro (English translation), a French designer named Philippe Starck is saying that he has already teamed up with a company to create a new astounding product which the results will be making their way to the surface by the end of the year.
As already reported by a blogging site named Hardmac, the designer named Starch just seems to have brought down enough interest though was very limited on information, in keeping his cool with Apple’s known ways of keeping secrets, as said in the English translation.
Though he did actually reveal that he met in the state of California with Steve Jobs just once a month for seven years and that he is continuing to travel over there to see Job’s own widow Laurene Powell.
A very obvious individual for this new and revolutionary product is the rumored Apple television set, which some analysts are claiming that it may released just later this year. Though Hardmac is speculating that this might actually be the remote control that is powering the TV itself, which this cites an area where Starck and his own team may be taking part in the design of it.
Though of course, in about eight months we will be taken into the late fall and this is the same season that we may be seeing a release of the newest iPhone 5 which I am looking forward to myself.
The changes in the iPhone are generally “evolutionary” and not really revolutionary, though the company and seeing an increase in competition from the Android generally, coming from Samsung specifically. So it may actually set the state for a huge ergonomic revamp in the newest iPhone, we will have to see.
Starck is a well known designer, as for his work that is shown in a wide variety of eclectic products coming from chairs to toothbrushes to restaurants to electric cars too.
His own design in style is considered very elegant, which fits into the category of not only Apple’s own product style, but Steve Job’s mindset. And he has already brought his talents into the world of technology by creating designs for speakers, headphones, and also even hard drives that are external.
With not much details given, the latest detail has to be thrown into the “rumor” box, though it seems quite unlikely that this designer with having a background and also the prestige of Starch would be claiming such a thing without the product itself to back it up. But for the time being we will just have to indeed wait until we see something in the coming months and most likely not until October.
In an update given by Cnet.com, it is said that AllThingsD is claiming that a spokeswoman from Apple said that the claim from Starck is news to them. But coming from someone who works for Apple, is like asking asking God what it’s like to be in the afterlife. All companies alike, are the same with rumors like these. OF COURSE the Apple spokeswoman said she doesnt know anything, if she said something then there goes the hype towards this new rumor towards a “revolutionary” product. In December of this year we will be used to it, whatever it is, and we will be using it probably. So stand clear, and just focus on looking forward to what the next day brings as we have already hit the bottom as we have no more details of this new product at all, other than it’s going to be awesome.
