Mark September 9 on your calendars, because a second super-secret souce pegs this as the day Apple decided on for the annual iPod/iTunes event, after teetering between September 8 and 9 for quite some time.
The biggest expectation for this year will be the iPod touch and iPod nano, both of which are allegedly getting cameras, which will make both devices dual-purpose point-and-shoot cameras for the first time ever. Sources at AppleInsider are also claiming that the camera is just going to be one piece of this year's iPod story.
We are also expecting the announcement of iTunes 9, which has been rumored to integrate social networking services for the first time. There were also rumors of Blu-ray support and iPhone/iPod touch app management in this new version, but no confirmation until the event.
What to NOT expect according to numerous sources, is any sort of Apple Tablet announcement, since this product is likely to not make any appearance until the first quarter of 2010.
The event has no set place yet, though from past events, it is highly possible that San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center may hold the event, or even the Moscone West. Analysts and members of the media will be getting their invitations with full details of the event about a week prior.
John Paczkowski on the D | All Things Digital blog was the first to report of the September 9 date.
