Apple Special Event Details

UPDATE: STUFF is also blogging the event via a satellite hookup at BBC studios.

Details are slowly trickling out about the new Apple stuff being announced at today’s special event. They picked a location for the event that not only had no wifi, but also had poor cellular coverage.

Engadget has small updates coming in, so check their site for the latest. So far, we know the following:

We also have word of a new, flatter iMac with built-in iSight. This guy will have a larger drive, FrontRow, and will cost the same as the current 17-inch modelâ??ships today.

The new iMac lineup prices are as follows: $1299 US for the 1.5GHZ 17-incher, $1799 US for the 2.1GHz 20-incher.

New iPod announced! The new iPod, as speculated, features video capabilities and the wider display, but itâ??s still a music-first device.

The device will feature a 2.5-inch display, QVGA resolution (320 x 240), and will MPEG-4 h.264 (natch), and presumably Quicktime.

The new iPod will be 30% thinner than the current 20GB iPod (making it 0.44-inches thickâ??say wha?), and will feature a 60GB version (which should be thinner than the current 0.63-inch thick 20GB iPod), and editions of both in black.

The 20GB should go for $299, and the 60GB for $399. Theyâ??ll be shipping next week.

The iPod will have TV out.

Stevie has iTunes 6.0 up thereâ??only about a month after introducing iTunes 5.0.
