Submission + - Apple Says "No" to Releasing new Dock Connector Specs (

sl4shd0rk writes: According to sources Apple hasn't offered any specs to developers for the new "9-pin Connector" to be used on the next version of the iphone. Apple has also said it may use "licensing agreements and threats of lawsuits" to prevent third-party adapters from hitting the market through at least 2012. There have been suggestions that this tactic is to allow Apple time to leverage competition and reap in revenues of $100 million for every 10 million Dock Connector Adpaters it sells for $10. It remains unclear whether Apple will allow third-party developers to release competing alternatives after 2012.
