Revisiting the Rumors: Rebecca Runkle proved right

About a month ago, AppleInsider reported that Morgan Stanley analyst Rebecca Runkle's research note detailed her findings from unnamed inside sources. Her predictions were:

  • 4GB and 8GB models, priced at $599 and $649, although she suggested that a slightly lower list price would be a conservative guess.

  • Full screen 3.5" LCD about 0.4" thick with a virtual click wheel and soft touch design.

  • Metal casing, similar to the nano, in multiple colors.

  • Camera, digital audio playback, video, e-mail and calendar.

  • Most likely carrier: Cingular.

Pretty accurate stuff, wouldn't you say?
