This year MacWorld will not begin with the keynote of Steve Jobs; it will be addressed by the Apple marketing Chief Phil Schiller.
In the same event at the mid of this year, Steve Jobs hinted “Snow Leopard” as the upcoming Mac OS X. As expected, Apple marketing Chief Phil Schiller will unveil more details related to Snow Leopard. He will deliver a keynote detailing the refined version of the upcoming Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard operating system.
Apple and its partners have been privately dropping hints to developers that its upcoming release of its Mac OS X operating system, dubbed Snow Leopard, will ship earlier than expected – and it will debut two new technologies that promise to speed up software without demanding any changes to the hardware.
It was in reports, that Apple will bring its operating system earlier than expected. The related sources that had a glimpse of slide referring to the release dates of Operating system indicate that Snow Leopard is scheduled for a release during the first quarter of 2009 (Jan-Mar) following a development cycle of “14+ months.”
“There is a rush to get the new platforms to market. The estimate for Microsoft’s Windows 7 is sometime in June,” he said. “Apple would like to beat that. Having something with which Apple can pound on Microsoft until 7 shows up could do good things for their volume.” The analysts state that although Apple is expected to show off Snow Leopard at Macworld, it’s unlikely that consumers are going to be able to obtain a copy until two or three months later.
