Let’s See How MacWorld Went, Shall We?

Going over what I wrote before:

“No, no, no,” Steve Jobs said as he looked at his marketing team. “I’m not having these … boat anchors … distracting from the point of the show! They’re ready, so announce them now. Get them out of my way!”

The dialog is imaginary. But I don’t think the point can be missed.

Apple is clearing the decks to focus on portability.

2008 will be The Year Of Apple Everywhere.

This is what I expect, some of which has already been rumored:

1) Major iPhone OS Upgrade, constituting most, if not all, of the long-rumored Death Star Upgrade

2) iPhone storage capacity bump, possibly including a CPU speed bump

3) iPhone for 3G networks

4) The iPhone SDK — with demonstrations of finished applications that can be bought now

5) A portable wirelesss keyboard

6) The slim MacBook we’ve already seen in a leaked photo

7) Movie studios sign onto The iTunes Store for both rental and purchase, giving AppleTV a new push

And that very special One More Thing…

8) The death of the Mac Mini and in its place…

9) An Apple tablet, the Mac Mini II — but it will only be as a technology demonstration, with shipping still months away. Just like the original iPhone. And that wireless keyboard I expect will work with both the iPhone and Mac Mini II (and, if you must, any Mac).

Ah, well. Maybe there will be several Press Events later this year…
