New Time Capsules and AirPort Extremes?

Posted March 2, 2009 at 4:58pm by iClarified
Apple may be poised to introduce new versions of its Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme 802.11n wireless routers, according to an AppleInsider report.

A filing with the Federal Communications Commission for a new AirPort Express was lodged in January and granted on Monday, and a filing for a new Time Capsule made in August of 2008 was also granted this week.

The documents appear to indicate that Apple is adding a combined mode, allowing its AirPort base stations to simultaneously support iPhones and other 802.11b/g devices operating at 2.4 GHz, while also broadcasting 802.11n wide signals in the 5GHz band to maximize throughput for notebooks and devices such as Apple TV. Existing models can only run in one mode or the other, providing either wide compatibility or the highest possible network performance, but not both.

A rumor from the Australian Whirlpool forums two weeks ago seems to confirm this report. In addition Amazon has discounted prices on the TimeCapsule by as much as 22%.
