That's the word from Goldman Sachs, via AppleInsider, which reports that Apple's Asian suppliers are saying design of the next iPhone is nearly done and it will have the same form factor but with a different look and 3G capability.
New in the report is word from the same sources that the sputtering AppleTV product is being reworked and may include an LCD display. So does that mean it's morphing into a full-blown TV set, or will it have a small iPod-like (or Sideshow-like) display showing status and content and letting you control the device directly?
The report also notes there was little info about the rumored subnotebook -- Apple's Origami? -- and that it may be delayed because of design challenges.
