(Newser) – With rumors swirling around next week's invite-only Apple event, PC World ventures five guesses about what the mystery bash has in store. It's too early for a debut of the much-anticipated Apple tablet, and September is the season of new iPods, making the best bet:

  • An iPod touch with a video camera—supported by prototype photos seen floating around the web.

  • An iPod Nano with a still camera—would make sense as a bid to breathe life into a declining market.
  • A major iTunes upgrade—could add social networking features.
  • Overhauled Apple TV—might turn the device into a gaming console.
  • Simply Steve—There's the chance that the event will just be a rally-the-troops talk by Jobs.
