The Fall is now upon us and the change of seasons is looking to bring a new twist to the story of Apple's 2009 year. The company recently gave indications that it would not be rolling out any more new products this year, then promptly rephrased that clear statement with a new, hazy one that has some wondering if another rollout may occur before the end of the year.
In a recent interview with Gizmodo, Phil Schiller said that the company had its holliday lineup for the year set. As most would conclude, this meant that no new products would be coming any time soon, and that the rumoured Apple tablet would wait until at least early next year.
Apple, however, has never really been fond of concrete statements, so they made sure that the site clarified that Schiller didn't say no new products, only that the company had its lineup for christmas set. This could leave the door open for a surprise announcement next month or even a post-christmas introduction for a new device.
Speaking of the rumoured tablet, several major publishers and news organizations have leaked word that Apple is working with them on possible content deals for such a device. If true, this would indicate that Apple wants to sell content directly over iTunes and not a third-party service, such as Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Perhaps they're also looking to make up with Google in hopes of a programme to bring Editions to the device?
