Apple event next month not likely to feature tablet -blog
Tech bloggers love to write about Apple, for better or for worse. The secretive nature of the company means a lot of those blogs are speculative and light on sources, yet we still all love to read them because the house that Steve built is indeed both a fascinating and hugely successful company.
The latest round of speculation is around Apple’s planned September keynote event which sources have told AllThingsDigital is due to take place on Wednesday, Sept 9 in San Francisco. There has been a huge amount of speculation around whether Apple will unveil a new tablet device but sources tell the blogs there will be “no discussion whatsoever” of the such a device.
AllThingsDigital’s John Paczkowski isn’t giving up though saying: “Too bad. It’s looking more and more like we’ll have to wait until 2010 for that.”
It’s now expected that Apple will debut a new social version of its iTunes media player and unveil new versions of its iPod.
The other big question is whether Steve Jobs will make his first appearance since returning to work after his liver transplant.
