Apple media announcement to be held in New York this month

Cupertino tech giant hints the East Coast to unveil first product of 2012

Apple's 2012 is set to start with a bang and a new product announcement with the iPad and Mac maker to hit New York this month for a media event

With CES 2012 set to kick off in the coming days Apple looks set to jump in and steal the Las Vegas based show's thunder with a 'media related' Apple event scheduled in for later this month, new reports have claimed.

Rumoured to be heading to New York City, press in tow, to make a possible new product announcement, Apple's upcoming media event is said to be pencilled in for this January but an exact date has yet to be given.

Apple Announcement Rumours

With the company's third-generation tablet, the much mooted iPad 3, expected to follow the company's annual product cycles and be spruced up in March or April, attention now turns to the cause for this potential Apple event.

Citing those ever chatty but always reclusive "sources familiar with the matter" tech blog All Things D has suggested Apple's Senior VP of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue is the man in charge hinting that the upcoming event will follow the company's last New York based announcement, The Daily, and be centred on publishing or advertising means.
