Apple is rumoured to be planning a big media-centric event in New York (yes, The Big Apple) in late January. However, from the sound of things it’s sounding like it mightn’t be too big of a deal.
The word around the web is that we aren’t going to be seeing anything major like an iPad 3, iPhone 5, iPhone nano, new iPod Touch or any other kind of hardware beginning with “i”. In fact, it’s sounding like the event will be mostly focused on publishing or advertising.
The reason for these assumptions is that Eddy Cue, Apple’s SVP of Internet Software and Services, is going to be involved. When you look back at Cue’s resume of Apple events you’ll see things like iCloud, iBookstore, iAd, the App Store and the iTunes Store. So at this point it’s more logical to assume that we’ll be seeing a software or service announcement, rather than a new physical product.
Still, it’s one more thing to keep an eye out for during the lead up to CES, so we’ll be sure to keep you all apprised as just what Apple’s got in store for us this time.
