Official word yesterday that there is indeed an Apple event on the 27th didn’t generate the frenetic response typically associated with such news, probably because the blogosphere, twitterverse and mainstream media have all been going gaga over it for weeks.
The Wall Street Journal correctly pegged the event date and location, and also said the company would discuss its “mobile products” at the event. Assuming WSJ got that last bit right as well, the event promises much more than a new Apple tablet product introduction.
Beginning tomorrow, January 20, I’ll publish seven daily posts about my expectations for Apple’s event. The last of these will be published on the 26th, and on the 27th, we will all learn whether my expectations were on target or off the mark. Stay tuned for seven posts in seven days about what we’ll hear on the 27th. Lucky 7, or craps? We’ll know soon enough.
