imageApple has sent out an invitation to select media, including iLounge, to a special event that will be held at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California on February 28th.

The invitation, which only features the iCal-like calendar image shown right, reads: “Come see some fun new products from Apple.” The special event begins at 9:00 a.m. at Apple Town Hall, Building 4.

iLounge has confirmed with Apple that this event will be taking place and is not a hoax like the email sent out last week purporting to be an Apple invitation to a special event on March 1st.

I started a forum where you can vote for what you think will be there. It is in the “future ipod” forum.
Just say what you wish to predict and then we’ll find out who was the closet. There is a point system I made up to help find the winner.
There is also a poll if you want to vote for what you think has the greatest chance of being unveiled

Nah, it’ll be something anticlimactic, like a new iPod cable that lets you clip a pen to it, and which the reviewers will all interpret in a fantastic new light.

I just had a hunch I should wait before purchasing the gen 5 iPod.  Hopefully that decison will pay off on Feb 28.

BTW, when are the battery settlent coupons supposed to be sent out?  I thought that was a done deal about 2 months ago?

Great.  my 5G w/ video is now obsolete.  I’ve had it for a month.

I don’t think this is going to be a huge announcement…otherwise they would have rented out the Moscone Center like they typically do. This seems like more of a low key product announcement.

“I just had a hunch I should wait before purchasing the gen 5 iPod.  Hopefully that decison will pay off on Feb 28.”

But it’s an opportunity cost; think about the fact that you do not have a 5th gen iPod right now.  Is that paying off?  Or do you think you could be getting a lot out of having a 5th gen right now?

I just don’t understand the people that constantly want to put off buying anything for fear that a “new” thing will come out next month.  Sure, put off the purchase, but realize you’re giving up having the current device to use *now*.

Relax Relax, just some fun accessories stuff like maybe a boombox? Will be stupid for them not to get into this market.

their not going to announce another iPod..its waaaay to early. I wonder what it is tho..hmm.

Definitiely not an ipod. 5G is way to recent, I’d wait until august / september / november for any new major iPod news. This is of course excluding April 1st, which I still don’t know about.

Well - probably the boombox, a diff. price on the mini/new version, or maybe shuffle accessories since they’re selling more now…

April 1st is the day to speculate about. February 28 is probably an event to hype April 1st:)
