My friend Nobi has written an article in MacPeople magazine (Japan) that a company in Taiwan (or China) has shipped several thousand Bluetooth mice to Apple last month. So although Apple didn’t announce any Bluetooth input devices today at Macworld Creative Pro, they appear to be imminent.

Greg “Joz” Joswiak’s “Feature” Presentation was, fortunately, not just a rehash of WWDC’s announcements. Instead, the presentation focused on news of particular interest to pros, and while no major announcements were made, there were some interesting gems, particularly some new details about Panther. Let’s forget for a moment that East Coast Macworlds used to have “Keynotes,” not Feature Presentations, and that so many press were in attendance clearly having their time wasted, and take a look at what new details did come out of Joz’s presentation.

“Openair is an indistinct lounge at 121 St. Marks Place with tinted windows and no sign,” writes Johanna Jainchill in the New York Times about a club where musicians often play PowerBooks. “Yet every Sunday starting at 5 p.m., the bar draws performers with laptops in tow to share their musical and visual creations, composed or improvised.” Read more… (free NYTimes subscription required.)

(Sprint PCS confirmed the handset was going to be made available, and now, according to MobileTracker, it wont be. No source was listed, and I will contact Sprint PCS business services again to see what the status is. SprintPCS has the phone on their website for $229, though some of the information is not correct. You can also watch the hand-wringing in real-time on T608 Users if you are interested. -Emory)
A recent MobileTracker story says that the T608 is not coming (despite a recent rumor here at the PowerPage). Their source is a Reuters story that mentions cost cutting moves.

With Steve Jobs ditching the Big Apple and this week’s Macworld Creative Pro in New York city one has to wonder what Apple has up their sleeve for The (formerly) Big Dance. Could SJ actually pass up an Expo with new product announcements? Or is he only handing off tomorrow morning’s feature presentation to Greg “Joz” Joswiak because it will be nothing more than a re-hash of the G5 and iSight announcements from WWDC?
