Hi all, the Apples announcement has been looming for weeks now. Apple is almost definitely going to be releasing their iPad mini which is going to be a spectacular product for the holidays but will won’t be void of competition like in previous incarnations of the iPad line. Pretty much every major player has seen the light and glory of the money fields that is the tablet market and all of your traditional hardware manufacturers are coming to the table with offerings including Microsoft with their own tablet, hardware included. I bet that isn’t going to make them any friends.
What else is supposed be to announced on Tuesdays worst kept secret event in the history of Apple’s secret events? Well, there is supposed to be a 13 inch version of the MacBook Pro with retina display, a new version of the Mac mini and maybe but not likely, a MacBook Air change.
With all of this happening on Tuesday Microsoft will be following a media blitz as there not so secret event is happening two days later on Thursday. The assumed play here is that Apple is trying to steal Microsoft’s thunder by announcing a smaller and cheaper product before Microsoft has a chance to offer up pricing for theirs. This week should be a media buffet in the tech world.
Until next time,
