Clayton Morris says Apple’s January event will focus on Steve Jobs’ textbook vision
| Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012
Apple’s January event is fast approaching and the rumors have begun. Some people are saying Apple will announce a TV, some say the iPad 3, some the iPhone 5, and some even say free devices for everyone. Obviously, it’s none of the above. However, Clayton Morris, who back in December reported on Ken Ray’s Day 6 show that an Apple event was happening this month, might have some actual facts from undisclosed sources. Here they are:
- This event will focus on iTunes University and Apple in education.
- The event will be in New York rather than in the Silicon Valley because New York is more centrally located for textbook publishing.
- This initiative has been in the making for years.
- The announcement will be small in size but large in scope: a big announcement in a demure space.
- At least two large project announcements as they relate to Apple in education.
- Steve Jobs was intimately involved with this project before his passing. He gave a hat tip to the textbook side of this project in the Isaacson biography.
- This will not be a hardware-related announcement.
What else do you think we can expect at this event? Let us know in the comments.
