Apple will see you in September

- August 26th, 2010

It seems like the Apple traditions continue, with yet another September Apple Media event at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theatres, this time on September 1st a little earlier in the month than usual.

But as usual, absolutely no details have been unveiled in advanced, except for the Apple logo in the guitar shows tell-tale signs of it being a music related event, again, consistent with prior years events.

Much Speculation

There has no shortage of speculation as to what will be announced. Will it be a new and improved Apple TV? Or could it be a new iPod Touch that incorporate features found in the new iPhone 4 like  a high res Retina display, a Gyro or maybe even FaceTime?  Could we see 99 cent video rentals or maybe iTunes 10?

In 2008, “Let’s Rock”, was the theme of the event. Apple rolled out the 160GB iPod Classic, the 4th generation iPod nano with voice recording and a thinner iPod Touch. It was also the birth of iTunes 8, Genius and more.

Last year’s event was also held after Labour Day and dubbed, “It’s only rock and roll but we like it”, very Rolling Stones-ish. In fact is was on 9/9/9 which coincided of course with the release of Rockband:The Beatles. That  same day, Apple released the monster 64GB iPod Touch; the iPod nano with a built-in video camera and iTunes 9.

One thing is probably for certain and if I had to bet my old flower-power iMac, it won’t be a white iPod Touch, or The Beatles on iTunes – although I’ve been more than surprised before.

What do you think?

    I’m hoping for a new Nano and maybe an iOS-powered iTV?

    With all the supposed “leaked” images of case designs – who knows if they are real or not, you may just be dead on with the nano. What I’ve been seeing looks like a small square form factor.

    As for iTV, it would make sense for it to be iOS powered and with a touch screen.
