The Mac Observer has posted an interesting comment from an Apple VP about the upcoming PowerBook G5:

When Rob Steerum of Fulcrum Global Partners asked Tim Cook, Apple’s VP of Worldwide Sales and Operations, about the chances of a G5-based PowerBook anytime soon, Mr. Cook admitted Wednesday such a project “would be the mother of all thermal challenges.”
When asked if he meant there will never be a G5-powered PowerBook, Mr. Cook said, “I don’t want to go further in the comment.”
The comments came during Apple’s conference call Wednesday discussing its first quarter fiscal earnings with analysts.

The PowerPage maintains that we’ll see one more round of speed bumps for the existing PowerBook form factor before we’ll see the PowerBook G5 sometime in the summer.
