Macworld Expo 2009 has begun.  The yearly party of all-things-Apple will move into full swing with tomorrow's 9am (Pacific) keynote presentation, to be delivered by Apple Senior VP of Worldwide Product Marketing, Phil Schiller.  Macworld Expo 2009 takes place at San Francisco's Moscone Center and runs from January 5th - 9th.

Both Arnold and Blake of Touch Arcade are on location in San Francisco and will be attending tomorrow's keynote as well as providing iPhone related news and information from the expo floor all week long.

We expect there to be many iPhone-related announcements and demos throughout the week and we will strive to bring those to readers in as timely a fashion as is possible.  And as we mentioned in an earlier post, we’d love to meet up with any developers or readers who will also be attending.  (Rather than try to coordinate individual meetings, the easiest time to meet up will be at the MacRumors and iPhone Alley party which we will both be attending.)

Follow Blake and Arnold on Twitter for brief updates on what we’re up to during the week and keep an eye on Blake’s MWSF ‘09 Flickr set for any and all floor pics taken during the expo (updated daily).

For a live play-by-play of tomorrow's keynote event, complete with photos, visit MacRumorsLive at 9am (Pacific).

    I have the feed cached, including unfortunately the last entry, which I think I'll refrain from posting. Doubt I'll get much sleep tonight...

    WOW, what a dissapointment. I was hoping for a new mac mini, then I could segway myself and my wife into finally getting a mac to replace our hackintosh.

    I was hoping for maybe at least seeing the new Iphone nano, or the rumored large Ipod touch, but no dice.

    The only plus is the 69 cent song price, but it's optional, so most songs will stay at 99 cents. The DRM free is great too, but not enough to have pleased me about this macworld.

    Oh well, guess we will have to wait for the next mac expo.

    There a seperate hardware event to come yet.

    Re: Nano & tablet... don't believe everything you hear on the Apple rumormill. I'm sure they're on a workbench somewhere, but Apple like to spread their momentum.

    Last MacWorld Expo for Apple too...

    Yeah, I know it's just rumor stuff, but it's still fun to imagine. A Touch tablet would be amazing, and honestly, I think the Iphone nano would be cool, but I couldn't drop the screen size that I currently have just to have something smaller.

    It's alright though, the technology for Ilife is pretty cool, and the new macbook is awesome,but I will never shell out that much money for a laptop.
