The rumored Apple event has been confirmed, and the date has been set on September 5th. The event will take place at the Moscone West exhibition centre in San Francisco and will begin at 10 a.m. pacific time.
The picture to the left was part of the invitation handed out to the press. As you can see it says “The beat goes on.” and pictures someone holding an iPod on a coverflow album cover. Of course this must mean iPods, no, well, maybe. No one really knows except the guys in Cupertino. However, I, like every other blogger in the world have a prediction. My prediction is a new iPod, not a nano but actually a regular video iPod. One that has the same size screen as the current iPods except it is slightly thinner and slightly shorter, with a similar aluminum style to the iPod nano. Maybe it would look a little something like this:
About a week ago I posted this picture from 9to5mac.com saying, like everyone else that these were nanos but today I say that they are most likely regular sized iPods. As you can see they look similar to the Nanos the only difference is that they are a little bit larger.
I’m also going to theorize that these new iPods will have a new interface. No, not the iPhones interface, that could cannibalize iPhone sales and hurt new AT&T recruits. But instead the new iPods will be sporting the interface from these videos that I wrote a post about last month.
Now I’m not doing anything crazy here guys, I’m just piecing together rumors that have been around for a month. The only difference is Apple hasn’t sent me a take down notice about them (Apple: firstname.lastname@example.org just in case you need me for anything).
But just like any other well formulated Apple rumor I have to take it one step further adding something that probably won’t happen but I would like to happen, I predict that the Mac Pro will get some different graphics options, just to add the ability for DX10 if you run Windows under boot camp. My guess is something like a Radeon HD 2900XT or a Geforce 8800GTX.
Alas this is just speculation I, just like all of you, will have my face glued to my monitor on September 5th hitting refresh in Firefox waiting for the next update on one of the live blogs. And I just can’t wait.
