Rumor: Apple to hold 'strange' event in Feb. ahead of March third-gen iPad launch - Page 2

Actually some would argue that the iBooks 2/iBook Author launch was the first major product introduction since the death of Steve Jobs.

While the iPhone 5 on the Gizmodo site is obviously a fake, it is very nice!

Earlier, according to information from Asian suppliers and the US, I forecasted that Apple would hold a Special Event in early February. However, I have found this information to be incorrect in some sense; it appears that the February event is to be something heretofore unusual for Apple.

It seems that a Special Event in regard to new products will be held in early March.

Thanks, that seems a far better nuance.

A new product isn't unusual to me, unless it is indeed a product Apple wouldn't nornally produce (Car radios / navigation for example). 'Unusual' would mean to me not 'how Steve might have done it' ... so perhaps a new Tim Cook-esque event? If that were true then it opens up a plethora of possibilities ranging from a stock split to a one time dividend or maybe a major acquisition (Apple usually buy small companies) such as the company Apple helped get started, ARM. I doubt the latter since we would have heard a leak by now.

We've already had a tribute to Steve Jobs. If the event is on his birthday, it would be given a nod at the beginning and then they'd go about their business. I can't think of a legitimate reason for it to happen on his birthday, though.

Fair enough then. So what are we left with? I love a good mystery I doubt a product so that leaves what ... a policy shift?

I still say iPad 3 announcement, a month (5 weeks) of preorders, and the iPad 2's price being dropped to $399 on the day of announcement.

That gives people a month's notice to buy the old product if they want it NOW… so as not to steal sales from the iPad 3 on launch day, like the following:

"Dum de dum, going to buy an iPad 2… Oh, hey, the iPad 3's out! I'll get… say, the 2 is $399? I'll get that instead!"

With a month at the new price and the simple knowledge of the new iPad, those that want the old one can get the old one and have time to think about whether they want to swap it out or keep it without taking sales from the iPad 3.

Okay, I see what you are saying. The 'unusual' is policy change then, i.e. pre announcing with prices. The thing is they'd be spoiling the big unveiling unless they only mention iPad 3 by name with no specifics ... that might work. I'd still love to see a stock split (yes I know it makes no difference mathematically bla bla bla).

Apple would never have 5 weeks lead time. They would loose billions in Ipad3 sales.
History tells us that Apple update products are released 1-3 weeks before the public can have it in hand.

Apple also needs to ramp up Ipad 3 production. Apple will sell millions on launch day depending on how many markets they release it in.

Many a product was launched with Steve saying ... "And you can order on line later today!" to rounds of cheers. /sigh ... miss Steve

Absolutely and no reason not to be in OS X too. Another nail in Google's coffin.

Unlikely to be worthy of a whole event. Unless the event is just a Town Hall meeting (not a huge media event) and they talk perhaps about all the computers.

Other possibles I think would be

1. it is the iPad 3 announcement and the source was wrong about dates. This event could be mid to late february with the launch a week or two later

2. it is the apple tv announcement. if it is a new actual tv there might be FCC approvals that would expose it just like with the first phone and iPad so they announce now and we see it in early summer. Same perhaps if it a black box that can act as a cable box/controller

3. it is about iTunes store offerings rather than hardware.

I agree with you for the most part. But there is the dark side of the rumors getting folks so worked up over an idea that when it doesn't happen, the value drops. No good in my book. The whole iPhone 4s/5 is a great recent example of this.

Unless Apple has decided to produce a non-Xeon Mac Pro, it won't be going in the Pro. Now if they wanted to make a new low-end Mac Pro using that chip, that would be a nice system, but it would be an entirely new mobo design as it is LGA2011. The non-Xeon Ivy Bridge desktops will be LGA1155, but the Xeons will b LGA2011, so who knows. I agree we won't see that processor in an iMac, it's a 130W processor, whereas the i7 2600 available at the top end BTO option is a 95W processor.

I wonder if the description 'strange' to a rumoured future event is the result of rumour mongering that just plain ran out of ideas.

How would anyone be able to label anything as strange without knowing the content. Unless the rumour came from Apple. In which case its a musical. The event will be presented in the form of a Broadway musical.

WWDC is a developers conference. It is THE most appropriate venue to beta announce software. That is when iOS 6 is going to be discussed. And the iPhone will come out 2-3 months or so after it. As makes more sense than a month later with old software.

Yes they would have that much, if there was a need for it. And no they wouldn't lose billions of sales. People will wait. They will wait 5 months of Apple says they have to. If they want the iPad 3 they want the iPad 3. That's the beauty of Apple's world.

No, iPad 3. Your implication that the iPhone 4S isn't a brand new phone is seeping through, too.

I just don't see Apple saying, "2011 was the year of iPad 2… and so is 2012."

What about a new design for it? Four Thunderbolt ports in place of the FireWire 800 ports, a single FireWire 800 for legacy, Four USB (three in back, one in front), no optical drives, six hard drive bays, 1 or 2 processors with 6 or 12 RAM slots, and two PCIe slots (aside from the double-wide used by the GPU).

Put it all together, add a dash of wild speculation. Apple and Facebook will parter to take on Google, with Apple holding 50% of Facebook stock.

Watching that video... At 1:09, Someone mentions the iPad with 3D mapping would be a "great way to tour the Olympic Park".

Bingo!

Good thinking! They could roll out the latest iMac on his birthday as a final tribute. How would that match up with the Ivy Bridge release?

Good point there. The original blogpost's title actually says, "Special product event to be in the first part of March, not in February," which I neglected to include before. It's not clear what exactly is this unusual thing that is happening with February, though I agree it seems possible there may end up being no special event at all. That being said, he seems to indicate that SOMETHING is happening in February, though what this unusual thing is, remains entirely unclear.
