Apple Media Event September 7th? iPod Touch, Apple TV, Show Rentals
One detail we missed in the earlier report from Bloomberg article today was the date that Apple is expected to launch their new iPod Touch and Apple TV products. According to two sources, the event will take places on September 7th, two weeks ahead of the new prime-time TV season.
According to Bloomberg, Apple will use this venue to launch the new iPod Touch, $99 Apple TV, and the 99-cent TV show rental service. The September 7th date also falls on the last day of Apple's back to school promotion where they are offering a free iPod touch with purchase of a Mac.
The new iPod touch screen parts are already being obtained by 3rd party repair shops as shown here:
The screens contain a hole near the top that suggests the iPod touch will be getting a Facetime camera as part of its fall update.
