Media event sparks announcement speculation

Wednesday next week Apple is hosting an international press event, taking place across the globe and linked by satellite. That likely means big news is immanent. Develop will of course be there.

Speculation is rife, and there's a strong chance it could be that Apple's answer to Xbox Live – the long awaited Game Centre – will make its debut along with the unveiling of iPhone OS 4.1.

John Gruber at Daring Fireball has alluded to the fact that an iPod of similar power to the iPhone 4 may also be annouced, and suggests that we may even see iTunes TV rentals, an Apple TV built on iOS, and perhaps an App Store for Apple TV.

The event kicks off on Wednesday. September 1st at 6pm GMT. Keep an eye on Devedop for more.
