How to follow the Apple tablet event
Tomorrow is the big day, the one we have been waiting for since the very first fake leak shots of the overhyped Apple tablet. The last weeks have been crazy, and I must admit that the blogosphere is going to feel strange without an hourly Apple rumors update.
Anyway, I’m sure you’re as curious as I am to get to know what the tablet is all about, so here are a few tips to follow tomorrow’s event, entitled “come see our latest creation”.
It’s a press event, which means that many hard working bloggers and journalists post a continuous stream of short text updates about what is happening on stage on what is called a “live blog”, or sometimes twitter. My personal preference goes to the live blogs which allow pictures and other media, hence giving us a much better feel of what’s going on.
Make sure to set your four browser tabs to Engadget, gdgt, Gizmodo and iSmashPhone. Engadget’s and Gizmodo’s live blogs are usually set to auto refresh every 1-2 minutes.
For those who, like me, are a little confused by time zones, here are the starting times:
08:00AM – Hawaii
10:00AM – Pacific
11:00AM – Mountain
12:00PM – Central
01:00PM – Eastern
11:30PM – New Delhi
06:00PM – London
07:00PM – Paris
09:00PM – Moscow
03:00AM – Tokyo (January 28th)
Will Apple stream a video feed of the event? The answer is no. They’ve never done it before, and I don’t expect them to do it this time. The keynote will however be recorded and posted online a few hours after the show. As soon as it is available, we’ll post it here, along with an in-depth analysis of the the event, so stay tuned. Oh, and for those who’d like a quick recap of the whole Apple tablet rumors drama, here you go, courtesy of engadget:
