John Paczkowski of AllThingsD is reporting that Apple is rumored to be holding its next big media event on Tuesday, October 4, ostensibly to launch iPhone 5.
What's really interesting about this (beyond of course iPhone 5 and Tim Cook's first event as CEO) is that for the past SEVERAL years, Apple has always had their Music Event in the first week of September where they launch new iPods (and of course, iPod touches).
Yet, this year they did not have it, nor even alluded to it. Now, first week of October is rumored launch of iPhone 5.
The question that it prompts is does the foregoing of Music Event signify something larger about iPod strategy going forward? Or is it just a case of the dog of growth (iPhone) outflanking the tail (iPod).
