Apple is having a huge event at at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday. There are rumors from new Nanos, MacBooks, the longed for tablet and even an update to Apple TV with an HD Tuner, Blueray and DVR (yeah right). We’re gonna stick to the iPhone and iPod here which is still a lot of info.
So far rumors include firmware 2.1. What will this include? Copy and Paste? Background notification service such as instant messaging we’ve seen in previewed in other keynotes. The iPhone itself most likely won’t get any upgrades. If anything it would be colors or capacity changes. The big deal is probably the iPod Touch. Changing to a look like the iPhone and adding a couple features like external speakers or mic is my guess. I’d also hope for a camera, GPS, Bluetooth, volume controls, etc, just like the iPhone. Basically and iPhone without the Phone. I know this would be huge! I know a couple friends that bought the 1st Gen iPhone just to jailbreak it and use it without service to get the camera, mic, speakers, etc.
Biggest news of all? Price drop for the iPod Touch. I’m guessing $199 for smaller capacity and $299 for larger. Even if Apple is losing on this, they will gain back profit on applications sales. If turn by turn GPS comes to the touch, they will sell like crazy for $199. Let us know in the comments what you’ve heard and keep a look out tomorrow as we’ll keep you up-to-date on the latest info.
