    When is the next Apple Media Event?

    I know there are a lot of rumors of the Apple Tablet coming out...is there any other product upgrades expected? I am in the market for an Apple Display and would like to know if I should wait.

    Thanks!

    The next Apple event is going to be held on January 26th in San Francisco, California. There is a lot of speculation about the tablet, supposedly called the iSlate, being released at that event. As for me, I wanna hear about a CDMA (Verizon Wireless) iPhone :cool:

    Rumors are saying 26th or 27th of January. That seems logical as Intel just released new CPUs which are ideal for laptops and ATI also released Mobile Radeon 5000 series which may be used in MBPs. Nobody knows for sure though

    Why an Apple display? It uses an LG panel.

    Lots of other excellent displays out there.

    It'll ship on the same day I guess. Apple wouldn't held a media event and then tell us that it'll ship in March. That was one of the reasons Apple isn't in MacWorld anymore because if they announced something, it took time to ship it .

    Usually it's the same because they all come from China. Delivery time may be longer due the distance and carrier.

    To answer the OP:

    Next event should be the 27th of January. It is likely that there will be Arrandale MacBook Pros (new processor chip), but I haven't heard anything about new Apple Cinema Displays. If I were you, I'd wait, just incase.

    Feel free to correct me anyone, this is just what I've read.

    Do we have any idea if the iPhone line up will be updated? Planning on getting a 3GS for my birthday, but I'll hold off a week if I know there's something in the pipeline.

    Cool, just wanted to make sure. Is the "Don't Buy - Updates soon" on the buyer's guide a mistake then?

    It is sometimes non-accurate.

    It says that because the first iPhone was upgraded to larger capacities mid cycle. June is a safe bet.

    supposeldy this event is more based on "mobile technology", so think MBP, new MB, tablet and possibly the new iPhone OS 4.0 will be unveiled, but that may be done in February..

    It's always inaccurate. It's just a script that when it passes a certain time limit it changes to approaching the end of the cycle and when it passes the average days since update it changes to Don't buy - updates soon. Cinema Displays have had don't buy - updates soon for almost 800 days so...

    Yeah im really hoping for that too, i am wanting a mac book pro and since the new macbooks specs are sometimes higher that the baseline MBP i think it should be likely that they get refreshed. Fingers crossed!! :apple:

    I think it is a little soon for this but I think it will happen, just not this month.
