CUPERTINO, California-April 1, 2009-Apple@ today announced it’s Apple® Euro Tour, a new series of conferences in Europe.
“For the first time ever we are going to address the majority of our European costumers, and since we do not have a very strong retail channel there we thought this is the best way to do that”, said Phil Schiller, Apple’s vice president for Worldwide Product Marketing.
This tour will be composed by different conferences on Mac OS X, iPhone, software development, iLife and iWork and professional aplications. Those conferences will be given by Bertrand Serlet, Scott Forstall and our product managers.
Apple® Euro Tour will be present in England, France, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal, during the entire month of August.
“But we do have more. We plan to end this tour in Portugal with a Steve Jobs’ keynote on 30th August”, said Phil Schiller, Apple’s vice president for Worldwide Product Marketing.
“I’m very happy to return to my duties as CEO with a keynote in Portugal. Everyone i’ve talked to says that portuguese people are very welcoming and it’s a pleasure to perform to them”, said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO.
Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh. Today, Apple continues to lead the industry in innovation with its award-winning computers, OS X operating system and iLife and professional applications. Apple is also spearheading the digital media revolution with its iPod portable music and video players and iTunes online store, and has entered the mobile phone market with its revolutionary iPhone.
Como podem ver por esta press release, parece que este ano vamos ter o Steve Jobs a dar uma keynote em Portugal no final de Agosto. Desta ninguém estava à espera Apple…
EDIT: De facto era uma pequena mentira do dia 1 de Abril, tal como os nossos leitores sugeriram. Mas digam lá que não era bom…
