Apple to hold ‘Showtime’ event on September 12th


Apple today confirmed that it will hold a special event on Tuesday, September 12th at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco, California. An invitation sent to select media, including iLounge, features Hollywood premiere-style spotlights and reads simply, “It’s Showtime.” The event will kick off at 10:00 a.m. PT.

Reports of a September 12th press event first surfaced last week after the hosts of the Your Mac Life radio show and European Apple enthusiast websites claimed to have knowledge of the event. Apple’s date choice appears to be intentional, as the event will overlap with the opening day of this year’s Apple Expo in Paris, France, an international Mac and iPod show the company declined to grace with a keynote.

Analysts have speculated that Apple will use a September event to launch numerous product and service offerings, ranging from new iPod nano and video models to a 23-inch iMac, new iPod-inspired phone and a movie download service. Such speculation rarely proves entirely accurate, however, as few people know Apple’s plans for certain until the event actually takes place. As always, iLounge will be on hand with updates.

I agree, I think ‘the phil’ is right on the money. 

Gatez there is no way that they will release Leopard any earlier then Spring of 2007, and if history is any indication, it will most likely be delayed until Summer or Fall.  I can’t wiat to get my hands on that BTW.

There is a possibility that Apple will release an 80gig Widescreen player, but I think that is still a ways out yet. 

The iPhone/Handheld is coming, read their patent applications.  Good news for you L.U. Guy, I am sure it will have bluetooth.

I’d like to see them launch the video service, and the widescreen iPod w/80gb.  But I am a bit of a dreamer.

I hope to see a new interface similar to Front Row for the ‘6G ipod’, I think it would work great with the click wheel on present iPod videos.  I suppose it would be redundant if the new iPod has a touchscreen.

Has anyone seen the ‘BluPod’ add-on?  Sound like a great idea to me.  What we really need is a ‘PodHub’ to connect all these great iPod devices to a single iPod at once.  But the I suppose they would have to upgrade the iPod to an Intel Chipset.  Introducing the ‘Core Duo 2Pod’!  Why not?  Think different right.

As long as there is an iPod intro’d, I will be happy. Video iPod, Nano bump, branded phone, any of these paired with the term “available immmediately” and my lunch break will be spent at the Apple store. Movie downloads and a capacity bump in the 5G and I will be just as dissapointed as when they announced the Hi-Fi. Surely we will be blessed with a new product that kicks ass, it has been long enough.
