For those who missed Apple's presence at CES 2012, there is some good news - Apple is going to hold an event in New York City and this time, it is about education. Disappointed? But it is still an Apple event!
According to the invitation sent out by Apple to reporters, it says simply Join us for an education announcement in the Big Apple'. The event will be held not in Sylicon Vally but at Guggenheim Museum in New York on Jan. 19. Except for what is written in the invitation, further details were not disclosed.
The New York Times (NYT) reported that the event is going to focus on digital textbooks and that no new hardware would be introduced. The event will showcase a new push by Apple into the digital textbook business, but will not feature any new devices, according to a person briefed on the event who did not want to be identified talking about it before it occurs, NYT said.
According to the biography of the late Steve Jobs, the Apple co-founder had been interested in developing educational books, including school textbook, for electronic consumption, using iPad, etc. Apple is now carrying out Jobs' wish.
Media rumor on Apple assumes that this event will be a strong push to bring an 'Apple impact' into the publishing market as it also revamps iBooks Store.
We wonder what transformation or changes Apple will bring on Jan. 19.
