Apple Event – Jan 27

In addition to the iSlate¬†announcement, I wouldn’t be surprised if there are some significant details about the next iPhone and Payment Capability (NFC, Visa, Bank of America¬†and AT&T). It could be just wishful thinking.. but there are just too many things lining up for me to think it is coincidence:

  • Rumored ATT/Visa announcement at end of Jan on NFC
  • First Data making heavy investment to act as TSM
  • Apple’s “complete silence”¬† on NFC to date
  • 3 mobile Start up vendors (2 tied to Apple) are in pre-launch prep for major announcement at end of month (?unrelated)

Perhaps I drank too much egg nog…. it seems impossible that 6 vendors could maintain radio silence for so long.
