Report: Apple Holding Media Event in January

Apple is planning a big media event in January, according to a report from The Financial Times of London and then confirmed by Fox News. The event will focus on the mobility space, according to an unnamed source within Apple cited by Fox News, a source that also characterized the event as being "big."

Word of an Apple event in January first began circulating in December, with consensus amongst those who watch Apple (i.e. just about everyone) that the event will focus on Apple's much-storied tablet device.

The event is scheduled for the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, a facility that Apple has used for media events in the past, with The Financial Times reporting that it will be held on January 26th. If the reports are correct, Apple is likely to begin sending out invitations to the media 2-3 weeks ahead of the event.
