    I think September 21st is the keynote, invites next week probably around the 14th

    1. Its a wednesday, the one after the Back2School promo has ended
    2. Its before quarterly, right before
    3. HTC reveal is on the 20th

    So in your scenario, what is the Oct 19th event for if they are waiting to announce iP5 until the following week? And does this mean two events?

    I've provided links and clues, but I just don't think people get it yet, Apple said a major product transition is going to occur before the end of their fiscal year (September 24th) Obviously this is a Saturday, so the event is going to be sometime that week now because we haven't received any invites this week and now that its Friday, we won't. The invites will be sent out next week some time.

    Totally agree. No way Apple would have an iPod only event one week, then an iPhone event the next. There wouldn't be enough substance to fill a keynote if it were iPod only,

    Likewise, launch and in-store sales will begin on the same day, as usual. Apple could decide to release in November, but it's pretty unlikely. I think the invisible writing is on the wall for a Sept 21 media event and October 7 release. It just feels right based on trends from previous years.

    EDIT: I see that I missed another glaring error in this post...
    So from the OP we have a keynote, then a media event, and then an iPhone announcement. This would be three events a week apart from each other. It makes no sense. Almost like the OP is just trying to be silly.

    Yerba Buena Center has nothing on their calendar for 09/19 - 09/21 so it's a definite possibility.

    I think Apple is gonna hold their event on the 20th just to steal press coverage away from HTC. It would be a dick move, but somehow I can see Apple doing that.

    I think invites definitely next week

    heard that someone saw the sprint iphone, thinner, curved and a metal back
    hopefully the screen is larger find my ip4 screen too small after using a focus and captivate for 2 weeks each.
    but the sprint strategy update on october 7th is about the iphone from what ive heard which makes me predict that it will launch (as in able to buy) that day. One keynote due to the product transition before the quarter ends

    a sprint store, manager and 2 employees apparently said october 7 is about iphone5--and that the $125 transfer credit might end before keynote and its still unlimited data but nothing about the phone itself
