Apple special event on September 1
Apple has scheduled an event for next week at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco, California. What’s the occasion? Nobody knows for sure but given the image they provided with the press release (shown above) you can expect it to be about the iPod and iTunes. Recent hardware leaks suggest their will be a new iPod touch released at the event that will have features similar to the iPhone 4, including a higher resolution screen and dual cameras for FaceTime video chat.
The rumor mill also suggests that the upcoming Apple event will be used to unleash a revised AppleTV with access to the App Store and TV show rentals, at least according to a recent Bloomberg article:
[TV] Episodes will be available to Apple’s rental service within 24 hours of their air dates and will be commercial-free, one of the people said. Apple plans to hold a San Francisco event Sept. 1, the company said today in an e-mailed statement. The event, which comes three weeks ahead of the new prime-time TV season, is where Apple will unveil the service and an updated line of entertainment products…
September 1 certainly looks to be an interesting day.
