"Apple customarily hosts a special event in early Fall (frequently around September) where the company likes to introduce new music and consumer products. Here's a cut-out-and-keep guide to all the current speculation as to what the company could reveal in the weeks ahead."
Jonny Evans over at Computerworld goes through a laundry list of possible announcements for Apple's annual fall event. I think the idea of an iPod Touch with an A4 chip and a camera is almost a certainty, especially if it will run the iMovie app. I'm not so sure about the rest of it. I would love to see a new AppleTV, but I think when it does come, it'll run iOS. I really don't see a market for a 7-inch iPad, and I don't think Apple does either. The iPad is exactly the right size for what it does, and the iPod touch is exactly right for what it does. Something in between seems pretty useless to me. As for the idea that Apple will accelerate an iPhone 5 release; I find that extremely unlikely. What do you think of these rumors?
