Click on for lots more pics!

From the boys over at TUAW:

Let’s just say I have been informed by a little reliable birdy about Tomorrow’s event. The line-up will follow this similar structure:

  • Welcoming of Media Members
  • Discussion on iTunes software, iTMS integration into iTunes, and iTMS sales and facts.
  • Announcement of iTunes version 7.0
  • Announces better search feature for Music Store
  • Announces Movie Store. Available Immediately will be movies from Disney and Pixar, among other studios.
  • New iPod Nano Announcement (nice brushed casing, while it will have same features as first gen, only a longer battery life)
  • New iPod Announcement (Widescreen, Bluetooth, and featuring virtual touchweel. Does not include Wi-Fi, or any other protocols)
  • One More Thing….TubePort. A $99 2-piece set that includes a dongle that connects via USB to your mac, and another dongle that connects via included HD cables or regular Component cables to your TV. The movie is accessed on your Mac via an iDisk-like storage component hosted by Apple.
