The Apple iPhone Event is finally here and so am I! So, I am going to be hanging out over at Mashable.Com, AllThingsD.Com and iMore.Com where their superb tech staff will be covering the entire proceedings from inside the Yerba Buena Center.
Last evening, the Wall Street Journal had this to say:
Jefferies analyst Peter Misek: “While there may be fewer surprises than there have been in prior years (as the number of leaks seem to be uncharacteristically high this time around), we still see numerous catalysts for the shares to perform well over the next couple months and the next year.”
Misek, who has a $900 price target on Apple, sees virtually no chance that the company will announce iTV at this event. But he does forecast several other events that may take place: “9/12 iPhone 5 announcement, 9/14 preordering starts, 9/21 retail sales start, 9/23 announcement of first weekend sales, 9/28 announcement of the first week’s sales, by 10/10 invitation for the iPad mini event, mid-Oct iPad mini announcement, 10/23 likely release of CQ3 earnings results, end-Oct iPad mini launch.”
Hmm – no mention of the iPad Mini at this event? I don’t know, that just seems weird and almost disappointing considering all the hype surrounding it. Mind you, we are only a month away from the proposed October date, so it’s close enough. But, a mention would be great. Something to tangibly anticipate and plan for as the holiday season approaches.
