One of the very cool things about big expos like MWC is how they expose us to so many different kinds of devices all at once. Sure, the bulk of them are likely to be running Android, but we’re sure to see products based on any number of mobile platforms, from Ubuntu, to Firefox OS, and more. For all the OS diversity the show will bring, there will always be a few hold-outs, and top on that list of doesn’t-play-well-with-others is Apple, perfectly content to go its own way for its announcements. Luckily, we won’t have long to wait after MWC before Apple is ready with some news of its own, as invitations go out today for the company’s next press event.
Apple invites us to “spring forward” with it on March 9, and while it doesn’t out and say what the focus of the event will be, that temporal allusion to Daylight Saving Time (don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead on March 8) is hard to read as anything other than a reference to the upcoming retail launch of the Apple Watch.
We know that shipments of the Apple Watch aren’t set to begin until April, but an early March event could set the stage for their arrival by finally revealing full details on pricing for the wearable’s numerous configuration options, as well as giving us an updated look at software and connectivity with the iPhone.
Of course, this need not be just about the Apple Watch, and there’s the outside chance we could see other hardware take the stage – maybe like that iPad Pro that keeps popping up in rumors?
