Report: Seybold - iBook and Airport News

iBook News

Steve Jobs had this to say about the iBook, the New consumer laptop from Apple computer that was unveiled at Mac World Expo/New York in July. "This computer is faster than the fastest Mac available last year at any price," He also added that the iBook is on track to ship in about 2 weeks which would put it in Mid-September (the 14th/15th) .

According to Steve Jobs, Apple has taken 140,000 iBook pre-orders to date; and Apple hasn't even begun taking orders in the huge notebook crazy Japanese market yet !.(Print Ads are currently showing there.) No word on other countries.

Just for comparisons sake when the iMac was announced last year from the May 6th announcement date to August15th the shipping date, there were 150,000 pre-orders in that 3 month span. In just over a month since Apple announced the iBook, there have been 140,000 pre orders for this machine!

Steve Jobs also showed off two iBook television spots that were set to be running on network TV immediately.

 

Airport News

At Seybold Steve Jobs talked about the merits of AirPort, the 11 Mbps wireless networking option with a 150' range due to debut along with the iBook but...

The Biggest News about Airport And I mean really big was when He announced that an enhanced version of the AirPort Base Station will accommodate 50 users, up from the 10-user version the company first announced.

Steve also showed the new Alien UFO Airport commercial and it's Very cool !

Conclusion

Once again the announcements at Seybold shows Steve Jobs & Co. are listening to their Education, Publishing and consumer customers to give them what they want and in a really big way, And that's good news for everybody!
