ThinkSecret reports that Apple's cell phone project has been placed on hold due to "significant technical hurdles" in developing the product. According to the rumor site, Apple had wanted to develop the cell phone "from the ground up" rather than improving on existing designs. The process, however, was met with technical problems in interfacing the various cell components. ThinkSecret predicts that the Apple cell phone will not likely come until at least 2007, if not later. This is in the face of numerous predictions by analysts that an Apple iPhone is expected in the next 12 months.
