May leave device absent from Wed. press event
People should not expect to see a new Apple TV shipping immediately after today's Apple press event, sources for the Australian edition of Macworld claim. The people moreover say that the device is retaining the Apple TV moniker, instead of switching to the iTV name as has been reported. The product code for the new hardware is allegedly "Apple TV - USA MC572 LL/A."
The information may cast doubt on what Apple plans to announce today regarding the Apple TV, if anything. The company is already expected to be announcing a new iPod nano and a new Touch, along with 99-cent iTunes TV rentals. Still other reports have suggested the possibility of an iTunes web store.
