In an effort to keep our post count down and not inundate you with rumor after rumor after rumor, I’ve decided to compile a list of rumors surrounding Apple’s upcoming event in one post.


Here’s a “leaked ad” for Apple’s iPad. What do you think? It’s a pretty good fake, IMO.

Did ARM’s Director of Mobile Computing, Bob Morris, just spill the beans on their relationship with Apple?

“all I can say is that there is one account we don’t ever talk about, and we don’t know what they’re doing on these types of products.”

The LA Times is reporting that a team from the NY Times has been in Cupertino for several weeks working on a Tablet version of their popular iPhone app.

Apple has been slowly amassing digital reading material for the forthcoming device. A team from the New York Times has been working in Apple’s Cupertino, Calif., headquarters in recent weeks, developing a large-screen version of the newspaper’s iPhone application that incorporates video for the yet-to-be-unveiled device, according to one person with knowledge of the matter. A Times spokeswoman declined to comment.

And here’s one from the Boy Genius that sort of corroborates an earlier rumor that Verizon would be carrying the Tablet.

One of our connects just told us that Verizon Wireless has a “kick off” event in the beginning of every quarter that covers and goes over new things that are in the pipeline like devices, products, services, etc. for store managers. Except, this kick off is coincidentally on this coming Wednesday, and additionally, we’ve been informed there will be a “live webcast” that everyone attending will be viewing around 1PM ET. Use your imaginations and let them run wild in the comments — we’ll see if this turns out to be related to any sort of Apple product/s pretty soon!

And for good measure, we’ve got news from Tim Horan, a telecommunications analyst at Oppenheimer & Co. (via Bloomberg) who thinks the Apple will release the iPhone across all carriers this year starting with T-Mobile sometime this summer followed by Verizon and Sprint in the fall. This is getting out of hand.
