iPhone 7: Our staff predictions -- and a Bingo card!

Prop bets and Bingo card add to Apple iPhone 7 announcement fun

Apple’s annual iPhone event is mere hours away, but the rumor mill has, true to form, been churning busily away for months. So there’s no shortage of information, spurious or otherwise, about the forthcoming announcements from San Francisco.

And Apple has been a bit more predictable in recent years, hasn’t it? There’s going to be at least one uplifting video presentation with aspirational music playing in the background, CEO Tim Cook is going to use words like “magical” and “journey” a lot, and he’ll show us some cool new iPhones.

Given this relative predictability, a few of us here at Network World have decided to put our money where our mouths are. Here are predictions from community editor Michelle Davidson, online executive news editor Bob Brown, blogger and Apple expert Yoni Heisler, video raconteur and editor Keith Shaw and myself, senior writer Jon Gold.

We’ll update this post after the event, to see which of us had the best answers. But if you need a little bit of side entertainment during the Apple event yourself, we’ve even got you a bingo card that you can use to follow along as Tim and friends take us on a magical journey of innovation and delight. Download it here.

We’ll have full coverage right here on Network World, so check with us before, during and after the event for wraps, analysis and more.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
