Apple Rumors

Couple of Apple rumors to report for this post.   First, Digitimes reports that Apple will introduce two versions of its new iPads next month at the Macworld/iWorld conference.  According to CNET, sources working with Apple says the new models will target the mid and high end customers, while keeping iPad 2 to compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire.

The second rumor floating around is that Apple is going to make a big announcement at the end of this month related to Apple’s entry into the textbook market.  According to this article, the event is expected to be held in New York City due to the concentration of publishers headquartered there.  Sources say the announcement will be focused on iTunes University, a content sharing platform, and iTextbooks.
