Apple is sending out invitations that it will hold an "education announcement" January 19 at the Guggenheim in NYC. Most rumors point to the unveiling of electronic textbooks
, something Steve Jobs had been keen to do from the very beginning, and has reportedly worked on the project to his last days.
The event is not expected to have any hardware announcement, but an iTunes University (iTunes U) project is expected to be detailed too, as part of the "education announcement".
What will these rumored electronic textbooks and iTunes University announcements entail can only be guessed for now, but word on the street was that the projects have been in the making for years, and Apple moved this event from its intended timeframe of late fall last year, to next Thursday.
