Paddy Power, a United Kingdom-based betting company, has started taking bets on what Apple will talk about in its announcement this week in New York. The tech giant only revealed that the event will be about an “education announcement,” and techies around the world have been speculating as to what the company has in store for them.
Given the event’s theme, it is rather not surprising that the most people bet on “Electronic/Digital textbooks” at 1/6, with the “iPad Lite” at second with 6/1 and the “iPad 3” at third place with 9/1.
The iMac desktop’s return is at fourth place with 14/1, while the Apple TV set, or the iTV, takes the following spot with 16/1 and the iPhone 5 on fifth place with 20/1.
“Like all tech junkies I’m awaiting the latest Apple announcement with bated breath, it looks very likely that they’re on the verge of launching electronic textbooks but I don’t think it’s beyond those geniuses at Apple to build a robot teacher,” said a spokesperson for Paddy Power.
Apple previously announced that it will hold an event in New York on Thursday, preparing for an “educational announcement.” The company has been quiet about it, but rather than releasing a new device, observers are expecting it to unveil iPad-optimized textbooks and new features on how users will interact with its content.
Paddy Power is the leading provider of gaming services and the biggest bookmaker in the United Kingdom, Australia and Ireland.
