AppleInsider reports that IDG World Expo announced Steve Jobs will be the keynote speaker for MacWorld San Francisco at the Moscone Center on January 10, 2006.

MWSF keynote speeches are typically a forum for Apple to make consumer-level product announcements, with last year's address releasing the Mac mini and iPod shuffle, along with iLife '05 and iWork.

As always, MacRumors.com will attempt to provide live coverage from the keynote speech, although recent media events by Apple have been in locations with blocked communications channels limiting only specific media outlets to provide coverage. If you are planning to attend the keynote speech, please contact us.

Excellent! and predictable!

Is Leopard going to be uncaged in fall 2007? I think Steve will wait until WWDC 06 to do a complete preview of Leopard.

I don't think we'll see any hint of 10.5 at a Macworld, just a typical recap of the amazing Christmas iPod sales, the future of the Music Store, and a display of the future of Intel hardware. iBooks, iMacs, minis, iPods... Who can say for sure which line (or lines) gets the spotlight. If jobs does like normal, we'll get two expected line upgrades plus one kicker. All the rest will trickle down over the following weeks in a series of "special events" to keep the hype up as long as possible.

Steve Jobs will take center stage to introduce the Mac mini with FR 2.0, updated shuffles, iLife '06 HD, iWork '06 with Numbers, and the one more thing... Intel PowerBooks, with flash-boot capability.

Hubba!

A better comparison to Sony wares would be the PCG-X505 IMHO that form factor, with a better keyboard layout, combined with an ULV Pentium M and OS X would be a KILLER iBook.
Agreed !!

Some truly excellent products to be released:

- Intel based laptops hopefully.
- Of course, iLife 06 and iWorks.
- New Shuffle
- Demo of Leopard - its time, one year to go. Tiger has been out long enough and Apple should have something to show. There haven't been many rumours about which will be new - new Finder and resolution independent display - but that doesn't warrant a new OS version alone.
- at least one new consumer software and hardware to be unveiled.
- RDF reaches new heights.


Too soon -
- Apple branded phone
- digital camera
- Intel based desktops
