Apple on Tuesday sent an invitation to select media inviting them to a special event to be held in San Francisco on September 9, 2008.
Judging from the invitation sent by Apple, the event will focus on the iPod. With an iPod looking screen and the words "Let's Rock" it seems clear Apple will use the time to spark interest in its products for the holiday shopping season.
In the last three Septembers, Apple introduced the iPod nano in 2005; overhauled the shuffle, nano, and video-capable iPods in 2006, and rolled out the third-generation iPod nano in 2007. Other September surprises in recent years have included partnerships with Motorola, car makers, the NFL, and Starbucks.
