According to a report at Mac OS Rumors PowerBook G4 speed bumps are expected at or before Macworld Expo NY 2002 which take place 16-19 July in New York City. According to the report:

Screen Resolution will be bumped up to 1536×1024. A different battery will provide 6 hours of juice. 48GB drives will become standard on the high end, with 30GB on the low end, and with a BTO option for a 60GB drive. Optical drives will remain the same as before. The entire line will now feature a 133MHz bus, and run at speeds from 733MHz to 867MHz (133×5.5 and x6.5). Both models will feature the ATi Radeon 7500 Mobility w/32MB DDR RAM (yes Apple isn’t going with nVidia, as nVidia is the latest to tee Apple off with their holdback of the Dual 1GHz G4 introduction

This jives with what we have been hearing around the PowerPage water cooler lately – fast Motorola PowerPC 7460s with 1600*1024 resolution, but as usual, should be taken only at face value. I really hope that Apple does something cool with the TItanium’s case design for the update as the company has been experimenting with coloring and anodizing techniques since the TiBook was announced.
