Update: WSJ sources indicate the tablet will be introduced at the event and will ship in March.

Original: According to All Things Digital, the highly rumored Apple event is real, and it's coming later this month. Citing sources in the know, the site reports that Apple will hold a media event later this month to announce a "major new product."

The get-together will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco -- a venue Apple commonly uses -- on Wednesday, January 27. Previous rumors suggested the event would occur on Tuesday the 26, but it seems that was wrong.

As for what's being shown? Well, naturally, that's a secret -- but it seems obvious to expect Apple's ever-elusive tablet PC. Let's hear your hopes, predictions and conspiracies in the comments.
