Tuesday, 12 September is the big coming out day for Core 2 Duo-based iMacs, new generations of iPod and iPod Nano, and Apple's iTunes Movie store, it has been claimed after Apple began mailing out invites to the media to come along to Cupertino or attend a London-hosted simulcast of the proceedings.
A satellite transmission to Europe isn't a common Apple press conference strategy, suggesting Tuesday's events will indeed be something special. Sources cited by website Think Secret claim, however, that the unveiling will not include the much-anticipated widescreen, video-oriented iPod that's been cropping up on online rumour sites since March this year. The report reckons we will see new, higher capacity Nanos all in multiple, metallic colours. The 5G iPod is simply getting a boosted storage capacity for the same price, it adds.
