New Touches, Nanos predicted
Even though the event is several days away, preparations have already begun for Apple's music-themed announcements at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. The exterior of the building now bears the same image as an e-mail invite sent out to the media. Photos of the interior have yet to come in, but Apple is unlikely to provide many if any clues as to what it plans to reveal.
Rumors and evidence suggest that Apple will at least debut a fourth-generation iPod touch, newly equipped with iPhone 4 features like a Retina Display and rear- and forward-facing cameras. The company may also be preparing to launch a radically redesigned iPod nano or shuffle, potentially built around a 1.7-inch touchscreen. Still other reports have suggested that the company may be making TV- or Apple TV-related announcements, or else debuting an iTunes web store.
