In case readers haven't noticed, a lot of news concerning the latest phones coming out are nothing but "speculation". Sure, some rumors are a bit more believable than others, and some are about as likely as the apocalypse occurring tomorrow (if there IS one tomorrow, then I'm sorry for misleading you all). The following two bits of news, however, fit right under the category of "very likely true".
Let's start off with Sprint: they'll be holding an event tomorrow, February 24th, to announce a new phone of theirs. Their latest tweet all but confirms that it's going to be the Windows Phone 7, unless there's another device that can connect to your Microsoft gaming console, without my knowing. And really, I don't think Microsoft is about to start letting different brands connect to their magical Xbox360.
Next up on the rumor mill pertains to Apple's latest event, which will be held on March 2nd.
What's that back there, you ask? Near the top right corner of the image? Why, I don't see anything except for a black frame with tiny silver buttons on the side, and an image that greatly resembles an interstate-sign for map-apps... Hm, now what could this odd image be, I wonder?
Many are already jumping to thoughts of the iPad 2. And who knows, maybe it could be. It seems odd that Apple would make invitations to a large press event just to announce a new patch for the current iPad; not unless that patch is big enough to start letting your iPad make toast.
Nonetheless, it's time to sit around and wait a while. At least Sprint's event is tomorrow, and that should surely be enough to hold us off until March 2nd.
