Apple's annual iTunes and iPod Special Music Event has just been made official, and this year's bash will be called "It's only rock and roll, but we like it", with the date confirmed for Wednesday, September 9 at 10am PT/1pm ET at the Yerba Bueana Center for the Arts Theatre in San Francisco, California.
TiPb will be providing a full meta live-blog as usual, and we'll be following it up at 5pm PT/8pm ET with our full analysis on iPhone Live!
Widely expected to be seen are iTunes 9 with social networking and iPhone app management, 3rd generation iPod touch with camera, and iPod nano and iPod classic with with camera to be in the lineup.
"Cocktail" album packages, the perennial Beatles on iTunes rumors, and of course iPhone OS 3.1 are also in the cards. And MMS on AT&T pretty please?
