MacCentral readers found a Web page posted on Apple’s servers confirming the address from Tokyo’s Makuhari Messe Event Hall will be broadcast at 5 p.m. PST (8 p.m. EST) next Wednesday, February 21. Apple has not officially announced the event will be available worldwide via QT streaming technology.
News that a satellite broadcast would be available at a planned event in London was announced yesterday. MacCentral sources confirmed early Friday that a streaming broadcast of the event was being planned.
The streaming of the keynote will be a first for the Tokyo Macworld show, which will take place February 22nd through 24th. Industry analysts speculate Jobs will use the keynote to debut new consumer products, including possibly a new line of iMac systems.
