My predictions for today's WWDC keynote
Apple will kick off its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) today with a keynote address by CEO Steve Jobs at 10 a.m. (Pacific). I've culled through all the rumors and here's what I'm predicting.
Jobs will introduce the next gen iPhone, which will have a front-facing camera for video and group chat. The smartphone will be introduced and demoed -- but won't go on sale for another 2-3 weeks.
Jobs will introduce iTunes.com, a web-based version of iTunes.
The CEO will introduce new Mac Pros and Mac minis, as well as 27-inch Cinema Displays.
It will be announced that Safari now officially supports extensions.
There will be no announcement of a Verizon iPhone. That's coming, but not yet. I'm EXPECTING it to happen in 2011, but I'm HOPING it will happen this fall or winter.
There will no no announcement of a new Apple TV. That's coming, but it's not quite ready (forgive the pun) for prime time yet.
No new iPods will be introduced.
And I'm 100% sure of this: Microsoft's Steve Ballmer won't be there. How the heck did that rumor get started anyway?
