It looks like big announcements are coming for MacWorld SF 2006 as rumour sites and analysts start to publish their speculations on the products that will be released by Apple during the annual event that takes place on January the 9th 2006.
Tapei Times claims that Apple will release lightweight iBooks. The new iBooks are said to weight only 1.5Kg instead of 2.2Kg for the 12 inch model and less than 2Kg instead of 2.6Kg for the 14″ inch one.
ThinkSecret also predicts the release of new iBooks along with Mac minis. Both line-ups will be based on the Intel Yonah dual core processor that will be branded Centrino Duo according to the site.
It is also confimed by ThinkSecret that Apple will release new iPod shuffles. This has already been predicted by many analysts and sounds quite obvious, considering Apple hasn’t updated this product line since their first release last year (only pricing slightly dropped).
Additionnally AppleInsider reports that the iPod shuffle is otally out of stock in its 1GB version which could mean the product would not be available until January.
