March 24 Apple Event to Focus on... Pro Apps?!

With the new hardware dropped last week, and an Apple Special Event still in the rumor-mill or March 24, we've naturally been hoping for a sneak peek at iPhone 3.0, just like we got for iPhone 1.0 and 2.0 for the past 2 years. But now (via MacRumors) is raining on our parade with a report of what the even might actually focus on:

software. More precisely, Apple's video Pro Apps should receive updates or see new versions.

Pro apps are way past due for an update, no argument there. What with Apple pulling out of NAB even before they pulled out of Macworld, a Special Event makes the kind of sense that does. Still, we want us our iPhone news! stamps foot and throws tantrum

Doubtful anything Final Cut Studio Pro or any of the other Pro Apps have on tap will be directly iPhone related. Unless anyone has any ideas to the contrary?
