    Is this event synchronized to Cupertino, Ca. time? You guys in Aussie are a day ahead of us here in the U.S., right? How about some early feedback on sales impact?
    The event is separate from the actual release of the physical phone. That'll happen 1-2 weeks later.

    Oz was not one of the first five countries to get the iPhone 4. What do you mean by "sales impact"? Apple is going to sell every single phone they can make for at least the first 3 months. We're talking about something in the 25-30 million range between the release date and the end of 2011. Will that impact sales of Android phones? Only of the high-end versions. Cheap Android phones will still sell well.

    By sales impact, i meant how well they would sell, but you're probably right about them selling out real fast.

    What time can we expect the live blog? I can hide my phone in my desk drawer while I pretend to be working!

    IIRC it begins at 10 a.m. Cupertino time, which is prime lunch in my neighborhood. YAY!

    not sure about this.. But I am thinking maybe not. Sprint is having their own even on Oct 7th which probably means that is when they will announce this news about the iPhone.

    Every other event has had new carriers announced during the keynote.

    Hmmm...

    Internet Streaming Channel Vertex to Cover October 4 Apple Event Live | iPad News Tracker
    Apple doesn't provide a live feed. So they're going to ATTEMPT to patch into a non-existent feed? Puh-leeze. This is a blatant attempt to get people to watch their channel. They'll probably be doing a meta-liveblog where they sit around commenting on what real live bloggers are posting. I'd watch TiPb or TWiT.tv if you want to see that.
    Vertex will immediately switch to the keynote, and attempt to patch into a live feed of the proceedings...

    then what would be the point of Sprint's big announcement if Apple is going to do it tomorrow?

    Specifics, other information about other releases, etc?

    All I was saying is that Apple is the most likely source of the carriers the phone will be carried on.

    So it gives them some hits...what's the hurt in checking it to see if they got a live feed up around show time and if not, leaving and watching a live blog? It's not going to hurt me at all if they get traffic, even if it is blatantly for the purpose of driving people to the site with no real intention of having the live feed...it's not like we are locked in on their website all day, lol...nobody is twisting arms here to check it out.

    Regardless of how quickly they put the keynotes into iTunes am I right in thinking that the Apple websites across the world usually reflect new products very quickly so all the info will be available.

    It's late but I normally follow cnet's live blog; they always have someone there and are more new oriented IMO than most others.

    I wish Apple would do the live stream like they did a few years back with the Safari only live feed. That was awesome. Was that for iOS 3 preview? Can't remember now.

    Sprint's big announcement is about their Network Vision project. The iPhone announcement they'll make will definitely supplement the network upgrade project set to commence over the next few years.

    Apple live streamed last year's iPod event, but not the iPad 2 event earlier this year. I think they'll do a private stream of tomorrow for the press in Europe who couldn't make it.

    One theory as to why they don't live stream the big events (iPhone & iPad) is because the limited access generates huge traffic in the blogosphere. Twitter, G+ and Facebook will be dominated by iPhone comments for most of tomorrow.

    There is no live feed to the public. Lots of live blogs. Scroll back in this thread to see suggestions on which sites are usually fastest posting photos.

    I don't recall the product release/announcement, but it was a one-hit-wonder.
