    Watch only. Which means I have zero interest in it whatsoever.

    Agree! Watch only.

    Expect the Ipad Pro to be announced around October time this year because it's only been 4 months since Apple announced new Ipads...

    If there were any iPads it would be the announcement of an iPad Pro/Plus with an A8X variant. The only reason I think this is vaguely possible is the rumours that went around late last year about the iPad Pro being delayed because of the success of the iPhone 6 and 6+. If it was ready then and delayed then there's a good chance it's ready now.

    Of course that's an outside chance. If the rumours were correct Apple may have just missed a window, and so they'll just wait for the next set of iPads.

    If the rumours were wrong, Apple may never have planned to release an iPad Pro/Plus yet.

    I tend to think it would be kinda ironic... if they introduced a new iPad Mini w/ the internals of the iPad Air 2. Cause last time they introduced a new iPad in the spring it was the iPad 3.

    Samsung may released it's Galaxy Note Pro or/and 10.1 at the MWC in March (1 or 2 ?) and if Apple is not releasing an Ipad Pro with an active digitilizer on the March 9 they are going to be loosing a market segment (student, professional and business) for Samsung & M$. As much as hate leaving the Ipad ecosphere (losing all $ that I invested in Ipad's apps) , I will wait to the 9th to make a decision. But I really need active digitilizer tablet for my professional need : paperless office - evernote integration.:mad:

    I think we might see the iPad Pro, watch, and 12" MBA. We might get a sneak peek at iOS 9 since it's rumored to be a Snow Leopard like release. I also wouldn't be surprised to see a sneak peek at 10.11 or even a new :apple:TV, 10.11 probably ought to be a snow leopard like release too, given how many features they've added since Mountain Lion. It makes no sense for them to have an entire event just for a watch they've already shown off in the Fall.

    Considering that we already know quite a lot about the Watch, I don't think there's nearly enough info for it to take up a whole keynote. I'm expecting at least some MacBook info.

    I hope there's info on the Beats integration, but it's probably way too early for that, unless it's a sneak peek.

    I'm expecting Tim to announce the watch for sale date, show more on it, and 'intro' the iPad pro, and a new iPod Classic/Touch replacement.

    But who knows... It could be about anything.

    I SERIOUSLY doubt that there will be the introduction of anything other than the watch.
    They're not going to do anything to dilute the effect of introducing an entirely new species of Apple product by tacking on just 'yet another' variant of the iPad...

    Hoping to see the 12" iPad & Macbook but I'm pretty sure this event will focus on the watch.

    I kind of thought there might have been an iPad Mini 4 to fix the perceived issues with the iPad Mini 3(like the iPad 4 was a fix for the dismal iPad 3), but there haven't been any part leaks, so I doubt it.

    It won't take 2 hours to talk about the watch.
    I hope they do release 3 new iPads. Maybe its a bit too much to ask, but I'm anticipating an iPad mini redesign (since the mini 3 was a tiny release) an iPad 4 like release for the iPad air, and of course the iPad pro

    There's no way they will update the iPad Air again so soon after the iPad Air 2 was released. Nor do they need to. The iPad Air 2 is a fantastic iPad. I doubt the iPad Mini will get a new release either, because the Mini 3 really isn't that bad. The only reason people think it's that bad is because it has the same processor as the Mini 2, but let's not forget that's an A7. That's not a bad processor and the Mini 3 isn't a bad device. Apple has just made the mistake of diluting it my keeping the Mini 2 around.

    The iPad Pro is something new though, so there is an outside chance it will be at least announced on the 9th.

    I wish. I'd like to see an iPad Mini announced on par with the iPad Air 2.

    I think it'll be all about the watch. Apple wants to make sure to build up as much excitement as possible prior to the release, so I doubt they'd take away from it with iPads.

    Most likely only watch. There's a very slim chance of a new MacBook Air release but even that's more likely for WWDC or later.

    I am expecting Apple to collaborate with Nike and release a set of apple shoelaces that auto tension, through an IOS app. It will also be able to notify you when your tension on your nike soles are becoming too squishy, so you can buy a new pair (via iOS notification). Should go nicely with the watch.

    Nothing iPad related will be mentioned but I'm expecting them to spend a couple minutes on the iPod Touch even if it it turns out to be just an announcement that the Touch is being discontinued.

    I'll be waiting for the outcome of the media event in vain hope Apple announces the Touch 6 :D.

    Pretty sure it will be pretty much just the watch. Hopefully an iPad mini 4 is announced, however, I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, doubt that will happen. Just hate that the mini is always a step behind the full size iPad now. I like portability. That shouldn't mean I have to be forced into old technology.

    Maybe there will be an iPad pro announcement. Maybe a retina MacBook air announcement. Maybe an iPod touch 6, who knows. I just am curious whether 2 full hours will really be spent on JUST the watch or not, highly doubt that it will. Excited to see what may be in store for us on the ninth. Possibly the remaining A5 devices will be dropped, giving us some insight in what that might mean for iOS 9. Pretty eager over here.

    Yeah, this is my guess. There probably will also be several watch accessories shown. Since there is a big question mark on it's impact, they're going to devote the keynote to it, and rightly so.

    I think it will be the watch only. If they do announce anything else it will be something minor like an Apple TV or new iPods (if they even care about those anymore).

    Anything like the iPad pro or retina MacBook air is too big of a product. They would want all of the attention to be on the watch and wouldn't want it to be split between other big products like the iPad pro or retina MacBook air.

    It will probably be 95% Apple Watch and 5% "One More Thing" the new Apple TV..
