Late this afternoon Apple sent out invites to a special event on September 5th, confirming rumors first sparked by Apple Insider several days ago. The invite for the event, which will take place at the Moscone West venue in San Francisco 1:00 PM Eastern time, 10:00 AM Pacific, also validates Apple Insider claims that the forum will unveil the new iPod line. An iPod line that will resemble Apple's recently shipped iPod phone in both looks and non phone-based features like Wi-Fi and a widescreen display.
September 5th may also see the annoucement of other new products, possibly another updated version of Apple TV. We may even get updated sales figures for the iPhone, something Apple normally saves for its quarterly report, but might release to manage expectations that right now rely on wildly speculative reports.
