Apple has launched their new Apple TV 3 at the same time as the new iPad – but what everyone is waiting to see is the Apple HDTV set. It sounds like it might be here for Christmas.
Yeah, I know. But it is exciting news even if it doesn’t actually happen!
The Apple-branded HD gogglebox has been rumoured to come with a new TV subscription service, similar to 4Seven by the sounds of things, as well as being originally dubbed the Apple iTV – which wont happen.
But, according to a recent report, Apple are expected to launch their Siri-packing HDTV in quarter four of 2012, due to some information received from various supply chains.
Jefferies & Company analyst Peter Misek met with unnamed sources during a recent trip to the East, and he now believes Apple’s “iTV” is a sure thing. “Specialty components have begun to ship to Apple’s Asia panel suppliers with polarized films, filters, and IGZO components starting to move in small quantities,” the analyst wrote in a note to investors Tuesday morning. “We expect commercial production in May/ June with 2M to 5M builds likely. We still expect a CQ4 launch.”
We know Apple is working on an HDTV as it was confirmed in Steve Jobs’ biography – it’s just a matter of when…
