Apple Retail Stores Receiving New Promotional Materials Ahead of WWDC







9 to 5 Mac reports that Apple's retail stores are receiving shipments of new promotional materials that are set to remain sealed until Tuesday, suggesting that Apple will indeed have something new to show off in its stores following its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) keynote on Monday.

Whether the promotional materials are for new software and services such as Mac OS X Lion and iCloud or for hardware products such as new AirPort and Time Capsule base stations is unknown.

Giving your shipping boxes the round corners of app icons is going a little bit overboard.

Unlikely, the current build is just way too buggy but I think an RC or GM is in order.

The promo materials are for iCloud.

I'd be pumped for LION to come out next week... I don't really expect it that soon though... technically summer doesn't start until later in June.

I highly doubt Apple will be using window merchandise for the Time Capsule mate.

You'd so get fired. I wouldn't be able to restrain myself either, no way could I be a store manager.

doesn't suggest anything ... might be just some promotional material about iCloud - I would assume iCloud to be available right away (and still hoping for Lion ... but I don't think they seeded a GM build yet)

They'd need to give the developers at least 2 weeks' time with the GM.

The window stickers are just as likely to be promoting a service from Apple - like iCloud. There might not be physical merchandise involved. It makes sense to sell an iCloud package when people are buying and iPod/iPad/iPhone (or even Mac...)

I'm withholding judgment on iCloud until I hear the details. Given how portable my library is right now, an Amazon Cloudplayer-like service isn't that interesting to me.

I guess even Apple managers like to use Hipstamatic.
