Fox source confirms "big" event by Apple

An inside source at Apple has confirmed a "big" press event for sometime in January, according to Fox News. The source has provided little other detail, other than to suggest the event will focus on mobile products, possibly related to the realm of the iPhone and iPod touch. The event may indeed be used to announce the long-rumored Apple tablet, Fox proposes.

The source would appear to back separate claims that Apple has scheduled a January tablet event. One Financial Times report has identified the event as taking place on January 26th, at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, where in the past Apple has staged announcements for various iPod- and iTunes-related material. The actual release plans for a tablet remain more speculative, with some analysts calling for a March launch.

Tablet specifications also remain in debate. While it is typically assumed that the device will use a 10-inch screen, other reports have suggested that 7 inches is a possibility, instead of or perhaps alongside the larger model. A number of purposes have likewise been ascribed to the product, ranging from apps and videos to e-book reading. Apple has allegedly been in talks with major publishers regarding books and magazines.

    But do we have ...

    ... a RELIABLE source on this?

    You know, like an actual NEWS source.

    A legitimate one, I mean.

    As opposed to one which, if the rumoured tablet fails to appear, will try to blame it on Obama.

    Cuz they will, you know.

    I love these headlines which read confirmed—question mark. Why not say "another person claims Apple event in January?"

    ...should be the venue for this, as it was for the iPhone-- what a crowd and what response. Energy level was amazing.

    Instead, contrarian Steve has to reinvent the keynote at precisely the same venue just to launch a single new product. Takes exactly the same amount of resources and energy as a MacWorld Keynote. I mean, what is that about, other than total pointless control?

    Too bad he doesn't even come to his own party. Wish he'd rethink that.
