    Apple has finally officially announced their October 4th iPhone media event.

    Invites are making their way out to the appropriate media outlets for the event taking place next Tuesday on Cupertino’s campus at the company’s Town Hall auditorium. The event is scheduled to begin at 10 A.M. PST.

    The invitations, pictured above, directly address the event's main subject with the tagline “Let’s talk iPhone.” Subtle, no?

    What is possibly a subtle hint is the notification located on the Phone app. It is showing a single missed call. This might be a stretch, but could this be a hint that Apple is planning on only announcing one new iPhone? Just thinking out loud here.

    Rumors surrounding the event's announcements have ranged from an updated iPod, to two different iPhones, the Facebook iPad app and others. What is almost guaranteed to show up is one new iPhone, iOS 5, iCloud, and the Twitter integration to iOS 5. But, then again, this all based on rumor and at this point there’s almost no reason to keep speculating, but this is the age of 24/7 news media. Speculation will continue until the bitter end.

    Terrific news! I was patiently waiting for this . Nothing is more gratifying than to know something, for certain. Unless something happens and they have to reschedule we'd all have to admit we knew ****! Go Apple for keeping us in a Cartesian mode of doubt!

    That one missed call thing is intriguing! My best guess is that it means 1 new phone as well. Perhaps those rounded cases were for the new iPod Touch? Sucks this news is coming out the same day as RAGE - I'd do a Steam pre-order on it but I don't know if I should save my money for a new iDevice or not. Dang.

    Good call. The way I saw it, it was completely revolving around Assistant since those 4 apps are going to be used frequently with Assistant and "let's talk iPhone" is a great motto for literally speaking back and forth with your iPhone. hmm.

    Maybe the one missed call is referring to the no reveal in June, hence the "missed call"

    That's exactly how I read it... "Lets talk, iPhone." I tell ya, Apple's marketing is simply amazing. So simple, clean, informative, and effective!!
