Word on the street is that Apple’s fall event will take place on September 9. You know what that means: There will hopefully be something juicy on tap from the Cupertino-based iPhone maker.
Details have been somewhat fuzzy on this, but according to sources reported by AppleInsider, the event will introduce the company’s 2009 iPod offerings and some music-related announcements, which will be of prime importance to iPod and iPhone users.
Over the past four years, the company has used the annual meeting to unveil new iPod products, including the Nano and Touch. Rumors abound that the latter will be getting a brand-spanking new camera, so Apple watchers are expecting the news to break at the event, as well as a new version of iTunes (9), with social networking features.
As for those of you who might be expecting the mythological Apple tablet to debut — well, I can’t say for sure that you’ll be disappointed. All I can say is that most pundits aren’t expecting it at this event. If it does reveal itself at all, they’re thinking it might be early next year.
Why are all the details so fuzzy? Well, because invitations typically don’t go out until a week before the show. That means analysts and members of the media should start getting theirs pretty soon.
