No keynote at Apple Expo Paris

Contrary to earlier reports, Apple CEO Steve Jobs will not be delivering a keynote presentation at Apple Expo in Paris this month. The show’s organizers updated the Apple Expo website today with a brief message saying that there would be no keynote at the event. Apple confirmed the news, but said Jobs and other Apple executives would be at the event to host a Q&A session for media.

“While this year’s Apple Expo will not feature a formal keynote presentation, members of Apple’s executive team will be hosting a Q&A session for members of the media on the opening day and will be at Apple Expo throughout the week,” an Apple spokesperson told iLounge.

As previously reported, Apple Expo takes place September 20th through the 24th. There has been much speculation that Apple would unveil new products at the event. With no keynote, it is unlikely that the company will make any introductions at Apple Expo this year, and puts even more significance on Wednesday’s special event in San Francisco.

Wait a minute. Didn’t they cancel a keynote and do a press-briefing instead when they launched the iBook? Or have my memory gone bad?

It just goes to show that when we were promised lots of exciting Power PC products this year, we were lied too. Apple have launched nothing of any significance in their computing department this year. all of their efforts seem to be put into the iPod.

most believed that the iTunes phone would be launched tommorow, sept. 7th, and apple expo paris would see new iPod mini’s and an updated capacity iPod shuffle. perhaps all of the above are being announced tommorow at the sept. 7th special event leaving nothing keynote worthy at expo paris.

“the color didnt come out to long ago”

It came out over a year ago only they were calling it “photo” then. “Color” got grafted over “photo” when it turned out consumers were more interested in the better looking screen than showing pictures.

If they aren’t unveiling a new iPod upgrade tomorrow they most likely won’t be unveiling one this year at all, ergo, there will be at least one new iPod shown tomorrow.

Those attending the Apple Expo should check out the store in Paris, iPodLife—the first ipod accessory only store in the world.

New product lines = keynote
Upgrades to existing products = website update (no keynote)

Why do so many assume that no keynote means no new updates to the PPC lineup ???
