Speculation: Apple iPhone to Release in Dual Models, Including Wi-Fi Option

Every day brings a new claim from an analyst boasting exclusive insights into the highly anticipated iPhone. The latest comes from Prudential Equities, who assert that Apple plans to launch not just one, but two iPhone models early in 2007.

It seems one model will be a fully-featured smartphone complete with a keyboard, video, and music functionalities, while the other will primarily focus on integrating with iTunes. Intriguingly, they mention that one of these will include Wi-Fi capabilities, though they stop short of disclosing which one.

I’m skeptical of these claims, mainly because Apple typically keeps such information under stringent confidentiality, and leaking such details could have severe consequences, potentially as extreme as being drawn & quartered.

Moreover, it’s all too easy for analysts to make bold claims without much accountability (a nod to the Dvorak approach). However, one valid point raised in the IBS article is Apple’s cautious approach to the mobile phone market.
