And according to sources close to the company, the date is Wednesday Sept. 9. The event will be held in San Francisco — most likely at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where it has occurred in years past — and is expected to showcase upgrades to the iPod line and an update to iTunes that may involve some sort of social element. Our sources insist it will not involve any discussion whatsoever of the tablet that Apple is reportedly developing.
His sources neglected to mention whether or not Apple CEO Steve Jobs would be making an appearance or even keynoting the event. They did stress that there would be absolutely no tablet whatsoever.
The event is likely to bring us new iPods with GPS and camera capabilities. We’re also expecting to see the 16/32/64GB iPod Touch varieties with $199/$299/$399 price points. Depending on the nature of the event, we’ll also try to bring you a stream of the event, live as it unfolds.
