Tim Cook Tightlipped on Apple's Next Products

NEW YORK (TheStreet) - Last night, Apple's (AAPL) boss Tim Cook was asked a lot of tough questions at the D11 conference in California. Many of those questions concerning arch rival Google's (GOOG) products - especially the ones which use their Android operating system. Mr. Cook was well prepared.

At the annual AllThingsD conference, Walt Mossberg asked a lot of very pointedly tough questions. With no new industry-leading, "game changing" products announced in a long time is Apple stagnating? Will there be anything new and earth shattering announced at the upcoming Apple Developer's conference?

Obviously, Mr, Cook was not going to reveal any new products last night. He'll wait less than two weeks for his own, Apple friendly event to talk about those. However, Cook did throw out a few big hints at what we might expect. He mentioned a revamped iOS platform, and made it clear that hardware design genius Jony Ive has been hard at work making changes. We expect a new version of OS X as well.

In morning trading, Apple was trading at $442.74, up 0.29%.

Cook was also quite vocal on the subject of wearable computers. He said he's very interested about what they can and can't do. He said he's not all that crazy about Google Glass. He thinks that people who don't need to wear eye glasses will reject the concept. Again, he very slyly refused to say how or if Apple would answer.

On the other hand, he was quite civil when it came to discussing Android phones and their current global sales success . Cook reminded everyone that unlike Android phones Apple's plan, all along, was to make one really good smartphone - which they've done. When asked about the possibility of a second model, which could sell for less, Cook said that it was one of many ideas under consideration. He also reminded the crowd that there may be more Android devices in circulation but owners actually use their iOS smartphones and tablets more than Android owners do.

In the past, Apple has hinted that computers and HDTVs could make for a great pairing. Last night, Cook was quite vocal when asked about Apple's set-top television box. Never really a big consumer favorite, Cook was quick to say that the latest version of the Apple TV device has been selling quite well, having sold 13 million units, with half of those sales coming in the past year.
