Apple iPhone event - Let's talk, indeed! // Another announcement from the people that brought you the iPhone

Published by Bassano

Sidepodcast image

Boy, has this been a long wait.

Apple skipped the expected June announcement for the latest iPhone and then skipped the September event expected for the refresh of the iPod line.

Today, the Apple consumers await the announcement of shiny products with much anticipation.

Will it be the iPhone 5, 4, or something else? Will it be 4G enabled? What about storage, will we ever get a 64GB iPhone where we don't have to be picky about decide ding what media to load to it?

There have been posts on numerology that have dissected the press invitation. Reader submitted designs, on what the new handset might look like. Some crazy cats even manufactured a full scale aluminium and glass handset which is quite impressive.

Also expected today, news on iOS 5, iCloud, new iPods and maybe the retirement of some Classic iPods - possibly foretold by the removal of "click wheel" games from iTunes. There's a rumour roundup but post any interesting links you find and we'll chat about what's to come, what we hear and what we would like to see.

The Keynote should begging at 10:00 (PST), 13:00 (EST) or 18:00 (GMT+1) to some of us.

Apple aren't live streaming this event but there are many live blogs and bound to be a naughty, illicit stream or two floating around. So, grab your refreshments and get those thumbs ready… let's talk iPhone!

    No worries

  • Mr C... May I take this opportunity to remind you that you will be disapointed

  • and denial is a river... somewhere.

    hehehe...

    I'll "get one", so to speak, but only because the companies gonna pay for it as I need it for development.

    Wife and I will be getting new Android phones at the beginning of the year.

  • So Leo is saying that the moscone center is being used by oracle, so the fact that it's in a small place might not be because it's boring.

  • Hi to the newcomers

  • Hi gang. Curious but not buying anything. :)

    I'll probably buy everything, but I never usually buy anything on the day

  • *waves to everyone*

    *nods in respect*

  • True. If you want unlimited data on O2 then buy handset only

  • So Leo is saying that the moscone center is being used by oracle, so the fact that it's in a small place might not be because it's boring.

    Rumour is that Apple couldn't pick a date [due iOS or iCloud polishing ]so stayed at home instead

  • Reckon we may see a new Touch at all? I want the older models to become cheaper as I am poor...

    it is a bit worrying that their first post-jobs talk is so... flat. now would've been the best time to come out and show that apple can still be apple even in a post-jobs era.

  • first time they've reused slides though?

    I don't think so... I think they've done it before whenever they've dealt with pre announced iOS features

  • They announced so much iOS stuff to developers earlier in the year... but now they are saying to the press... when you talk about the new phone and you say, "it's got nothing new" we'd like to remind you that we have lots of new stuff...

    Doesn't matter what brand of computer/device/OS you use. What you use is better than it would've been because of Steve Jobs.

    Completely agree with it. A very sad day for all the technology world...

  • Real bonus that we don't need to listen to Piers Morgan

    A bit scary how that seems to be perfectly timed.

    I didn't think it would affect me that much, being fairly new to having Mac stuff (2 years), but he just changed so much in such a short time.

    338 patents.

  • I didn't think it would affect me that much, being fairly new to having Mac stuff (2 years), but he just changed so much in such a short time.

    I also bought my first Mac device 2 years ago, but as a techie, I was so intrigued by the Gates-Jobs battles and wars. And as much as I loved Windows more than Mac OS (and still do), I was amazed by how Jobs turned about Apple from the brink of bankruptcy... to this.

  • I didn't think it would affect me that much, being fairly new to having Mac stuff (2 years), but he just changed so much in such a short time.

    I've never had any Apple related device. Actually, I don't even agree with the philosophy of the Apple system. And yet I've dropped a tear...

    And to be hired back all those years ago after being fired and then to turn it into...this, as you so aptly said.

    And I do love elegant design so, so much. He had me at "i" :)

  • On another note, this behind-the-scenes audio feed with CNN is interesting stuff. For me, anyway. Now I know how it works.

  • This is a really good lesson in how TV works. You normally see it as being so slick and you assume everything is timed and planned to the second

  • And to be hired back all those years ago after being fired and then to turn it into...this, as you so aptly said.

    They bought his new company to bring him back! That said a lot.

    For me, Jobs is the modern-day Edison. I remember the US went into a declared state of mourning for Edison. A statement from Obama is totally expected.

  • Google has a simple tribute to Steve Jobs on the homepage:

    I would love to see a Steve Jobs doodle soon.

  • I had forgotten about Jobs connection to Pixar.

    Forget about all the i-things, without Jobs we wouldn't have had Toy Story, Nemo, Wall-e, Cars, Monsters Inc...

  • My students just did a project on inventors. Several chose Steve Jobs. They turned in the project today.

  • I had forgotten about Jobs connection to Pixar.

    Indeed. The thing about Steve is that he would have been remembered if he had just made the Macintosh. Or just founded Pixar. Or just made the iPod. Or just the iPhone. Or just the iPad. But he had his hand in ALL of them.

  • Celebrating his life is just what I want to do (as I type on the MacBook). :)

Boy, has this been a long wait. Apple skipped the expected June announcement for the latest iPhone and then skipped the September event expected for the refresh of the iPod line. Today, the Apple consumers await the announcement of shiny products with much anticipation.

Event start
