Registration for Macworld 2009 Officially Begins; New Cinema Displays?

According to, the IDG World Expo has opened attendee registration for MacWorld Conference & Expo 2009, set to take place (once again) in San Francisco, California at the Moscone Center, on January 5-9, 2009.

The MacWorld Conference & Expo is an annual even for Apple where, historically, important announcements have been made. It’s where Steve released the iPhone on the world, and it’s where Bill Gates was boooood in 1997. At last years event Apple unveiled a plethora of products and services: the MacBook Air, iTunes Movie Rentals, an iPod Touch Software Update, iPhone Software Update, SDK announcement, and the Time Capsule.

Rumors are a-flutter this year, according to, Apple is planning on unleashing Cinema Display Updates, focusing the entire MWSF ‘09 around Mac products, with Sir Steve Jobs expected to deliver the opening keynote on Tuesday, January 6th.

Apple’s Cinema Displays haven’t received any attention for nearly 2 years. All currently shipping Mac notebooks come with integrated iSight cameras, and the Cinema Displays do not, even though Apple stopped selling stand-alone iSight cameras in December of 2006.

Back in June rumors about an iSight HD briefly surfaced, but they are not likely. MacBlogz has an ongoing petition to try and gauge how many of our readers are waiting for new Cinema Displays or notebook updates. Rants focused around the insanity of how long it’s taking Apple to address these products are not hard to find. An ode titled “My Macbook Pro Woes” can be found here. Additionally, MacBlogz has been able to confirm the inclusion of a “Macbook-Air-Like” keyboard in the new Macbook Pro which is expected to be released October 14th.

It’s still unconfirmed whether Apple CEO Steve Jobs will be delivering his keynote speech at the event, but historically, he has been very consistent with big product announcements.
