Latest investing news from a Wall Street analyst indicated Apple Computer (Nasdaq : AAPL), which recently released its first mobile handset to manufacturing, is working on a second model that will incorporate messaging capabilities (here to read about the new Apple iPhone).

American Technology Research analyst said Apple will leverage on existing Mac’s iChat software to focus on mobile IM instead of e-mail.

Though Apple is mum on “When” the iPhone will be on the street, analysts are very optimistic the company’s first cell phone will be released in 2007.

Back in early November-2006, Apple has quietly introduced a 8GB version of its iPod nano (PRODUCT) RED digital music player retailed at $ 249 (features 24 hours of battery life). These iPods are sold through Apple direct channels, have a unique red color, and are for a charitable cause where Apple donates $10 for each sold to the Global Fund (a fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria which was established in 2002).

It is estimated that Apple will be able to sell 14 million iPods for the December quarter, but given the momentum in RED iPods analyst forecast is likely to turn out conservative.
This provide investing opportunity in Apple and its’ related partner such as Broadcom Corp (Nasdaq : BRCM) which is expected to supply chips for iPhone. Broadcom stock rose almost six percent on Nasdaq yesterday (at the time of writing FinanceTwitter has opened a position on Broadcom – May 2007 35 Call option).
