Apple’s Leopard to chase MS Vista
Just weeks after Microsoft invited the world to trial Vista, the next version of Windows, Apple’s announced it will soon be publicly unwrapping its new OS. Known as Leopard – or, more prosaically, version 10.5 – the new OS will be shown off to developers and tech journos at a bash in San Francisco starting 7th August. So far, Apple has disclosed very little about Leopard, beyond its shipping date.
The operating system will be available for both PowerPC and Intel processors. Builds since 10.0 have been written for both processors, but never publicly available as a retail product until Leopard.
Information suggests that Apple is also developing a new telephony application into Leopard. Features include on-screen Caller ID, desktop dialing, speakerphone, and voicemail. Users will be able to access numbers from their Address Book, cellphone (iPhone) via Bluetooth, among others.
Hmm…this is really something to look out for…i guess 🙂
