It's on: Apple holding January 27th event to show off its 'latest creation'

Breaking News

Yes folks -- the rumors are true. Apple is holding an event on January 27th to show off something the company is calling their "latest creation." Hair standing on end? Good. The proceedings will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco, and will get underway at 10AM Pacific. We'll be there live -- as usual -- covering every little second of the action... so get ready!

Update: We're not ones for wild speculation, but the inclusion of splatter paint and the use of the word "creation" could suggest that if we do see the long-rumored Tablet at this event, the focus could be slanted towards art, music, and movie-making. Maybe we'll finally figure out what the point of an Apple tablet is! On the other hand, that might just be a bit of wild speculation. Feel free to generate your own kooky concepts in comments -- we promise not to judge you.

I hope they finally announce it. Just so I don't have to keep wondering about the tech specs and how iPhone games are going to convert over.

Excuse me, sir, but you are interrupting my boredom.

Just once I'd like them to say "Yes, it's the new iPod/iPhone/iTablet". Rumors have been circling for a year, it's pretty damn obvious.

Seems possibly. Not getting my hopes up. 1) It may be a false alarm. 2) Either way, I'm not getting one for a while. I want one, don't need one.

I'm desperately trying to keep my bank balance up until I find out if I want it or not... if I don't I can start buying apps again.

This is what I think we're going to see:

iTablet or iSlate or MacPad
- 7 inch OLED display
- Internal hardware specs on par with the current lowest end MacBook
- Development tools available as soon as the presentation ends including iPhone app conversion tools
- Deals in place with a number of book, newspaper and magazine publishers to add content to the iTunes store and undercut the E-Reader market
- A dock that contains USB and Firewire 2 ports but costs at least $60 extra
- OS X 10.7 with a new UI for touchscreen devices that will be reflected in the next version of the iPhone and iPod Touch firmware as well
