This upcoming week will be a major one in the world of technology and gaming because of the press conferences that two of the most prolific companies in their respective industries will be having.
Apple will be hosting a press conference this coming Wednesday, Sept. 12th from San Francisco, CA.
At this event they are expected to unveiled the release date, price and specs for the highly rumored and talked about iPhone 5.
The very next day on Sept. 13th, Nintendo will be hosting its own press conference from New York City.
Nintendo's event is expected to shed light on price, games, specs and possibly even a release date for their highly anticipated next-generation console, the Wii U.
The iPhone 5's details have been a bit more widely known, whereas the Wii U's details have been scarce to say the least. The only real tangible things to report on the system are what people have already seen in the way of demos and footage.
According to trustedreviews.com, the iPhone 5 will be featuring a 7.6mm thick device with metal casing and a non-removable battery.
The metal casing is rumored to be made out of "liquid metal," an unusual resource that is feels a lot like glass.
Its screen is apparently going to be 4 inches wide, with the capability to display up to 1136x640 resolution.
The iPhone 5's power is supposedly going to check-in with 1GB RAM, an A6 processor and power TBC.
The hot topic that everyone already knows about is the fact that the iPhone 5 will be featuring a different connectivity plug-in than what all other Apple devices currently feature.
So yes, that will mean you need to purchase a brand-new iHome or any other device you hook your Apple products up to.
Finally, the iPhone 5 should have a camera that has 8 megapixels along with an LED flash for taking pictures and video.
On the Nintendo side of things, the Wii U's specs are all rumored and actual Nintendo representatives have confirmed none of them, but that doesn't mean there haven't been any anonymous sources that haven't spoken about the console.
According to a report from eurogamer.net, the Wii U's CPU will be manufacturer by IBM and will feature triple Power PC cores.
The story went on to allege that the system will have about 1GB RAM.
Wii U's graphic processor looks to be checking in with a custom AMD 7 series GPU that will support DirectX 10 and shader 4 type features.
Some folks who have commented on the power of the system have said it is as powerful or maybe even a little more powerful than the current generation of Xbox and Playstation.
The price and release date have been hotly debated and rumored, with the latest report coming from GoNintendo.
The site claimed that there would be three different pricing options for the Wii U once it releases. People will have the choice of either purchasing a console bundle worth $250, $300 or $350.
Those prices will not doubt vary based upon the amount of controllers, games or memory each bundle will have. This makes a lot of sense considering how Nintendo publicly stated they were going to be sensitive with the price of the console once it released.
The release date that was also mentioned in the article, placed the console in retailers on November 18th, which odd enough is a Sunday.
It's pretty doubtful that Nintendo would release a new console on a Sunday considering, most games typically debut on Tuesdays, and a Sunday makes zero sense for people going out and waiting in a line for hours upon end.
A day during the week or perhaps Black Friday would make more sense than throwing it out on an NFL Sunday. Nintendo is smarter than that.
Either way, the whole world will receive answers to the questions they have been asking for months now.
Which device are you more excited to learn official details about?
