Apple Keynote March 2012

So today is the day where Apple is supposed to release the info about the long
awaited gadgets. As the banner says “We have something you really have to see.
And touch” it’s most likely that Apple is going to show the new HD-Display iPad
and probably the new AppleTV. What’s really coming, you’ll see here at 7p.m.!

So what will the new gadgets be. What new features will be shown to us? Many questions. Many thoughts. Many speculations. The air is burning with the rumor about the new iPad 3 or iPad HD, no one knows the real name of the new gadget. Also the tales spin around AppleTV. A fully engineered TV device with AppleTV built-in.

The expectations are high, and that’s good. Apple may not fail this time. The stocks are really high:

At 18:30 local time (9:30 PST) the stock says 535 USD per share. That’s giving Apple a total market capital of nearly 500 billion USD

So stay when the live update starts here at 19:00 Local time (10:00 PST)

18:45 – It is true: There will be NO live stream transmitted from the Apple keynote event. Currently the Lineup for the event is ongoing in San Francisco. 15 minutes until the event starts…

Thank you for your participation! So what do you think. Will the new iPad on your list of new gadgets to purchase? I will definitely. I skipped iPad and iPad2 but on  the new iPad I am hitting the “Buy one” button!

Here’s a small overview for your viewing pleasure:

iPad 2 The new iPad
WiFi 3G WiFi LTE
16GB 399$ 529$ 499$ 629$
32GB discontinued discontinued 599$ 729$
64GB discontinued discontinued 699$ 829$

Expect slight price fall of the iPad 2. By the way: Preordering doesn’t work yet.

Odd: The Apple stock share didn’t explode upon the reveal of the new iPad. Coincidence or just a slight delay. The paper noted almost at opening value at the end of the Keynote Event.
Maybe it’s a strange behaviour as some people expected to see details on the new iPhone 5? Or maybe iTV? No one knows for sure. But the next days will show!

Have a nice evening!
