Invitation sent to Kotaku today: "Please join Apple on January 27 for a Special Event." Assumption made by Kotaku today: iSlate reveal? Now, why would Kotaku be sent that?
Earlier this month, The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple's long-rumoured tablet computer, the iSlate (perhaps?) would be shown to the press and the world on January 27. Today's invitation from Apple, emailed to Kotaku and numerous other outlets, suggests Apple does indeed have something big to announce that day.
So... Kotaku, we do write about Apple, but mostly in the context of video games. So if we're going to leap to iSlate conclusions, let us also leap to gaming conclusions. iSlate Tower defence anyone? iSlate R.U.S.E. (aka the real-time strategy game already planned for multi-touch screens) perhaps?
Or maybe Apple's just announcing another phone. Or an iStapler.
