Apple is making a major new product announcement today, likely a less expensive 7 inch iPad. They may also announce a retina version of the 13 inch Macbook Pro. Why is this significant? Well for me it is not so much the products they are planning to launch, but the location of the announcement. It's happening right here, in the California Theater in Downtown San Jose.
Traditionally Apple has made product announcements from the Moscone Center in SF. With the remodel and expansion of the San Jose Convention Center, perhaps we can land future product announcements as well that require a larger space. Regardless of what happens going forward, today is a very good day for San Jose.
The event starts at 10:00am, and many tech sites such as Engadget will be live-blogging it.
