Apple iPod event Sept. 9th
Apple has finally scheduled a date for its long-awaited September publicity event, according to reports. The company has issued invitations to select members of the public, pointing to a gathering at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, starting at 10AM on September 9th. The invitation also deliberately mimics the Now Playing screens of iPod nanos and classics, suggesting that the event will concentrate heavily on iPods, as anticipated.
New models are rumored to include a fourth-generation Nano, and revised iPod touches, possibly dropped in price to remain competitive with the iPhone 3G. Analysts have also expected Apple to introduce redesigned Pro and basic MacBooks however, as their essential designs have remained unchanged for years.
