A couple of weeks ago, rumors started doing the rounds that Apple was planning to hold an event in New York City before the end of the month. Well, the rumors were true, as Cupertino has revealed that it's heading to New York on January 19 for a special announcement.
Sadly, those hoping this would be an iPad 3 or Apple TV press event will be disappointed, as the invitation indicates this event is all about Apple in the education market. In fact, if the scuttlebutt is to be believed, there's going to be no new hardware at all. What a shame. Still, it will be interesting to see what Apple has up its sleeve for education. The company already offers a wide range of educational content via iTunes U, so it's not like this is new territory.
Rather fittingly, the event is set to take place in the Guggenheim museum. Field trip, anyone?
