Apple, Foxconn and Sharp testing HD iTV designs
The latest reports indicate that Foxconn and Sharp (previously rumoured to be supplying their screen tech for the Apple HD gogglebox) are working together over in Asia to come up with designs for the Cali gadget company.
One of the sources is quoted as whispering “It isn’t a formal product yet. It is still in the early stages of testing,”
It seems that, like Valve, Apple is keen to move in to your living room on a more permanent basis. In fact, Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed to NBC news last week that the television market is an “area of intense interest.”
It will be interesting to see how the arrival of an Apple telly will hit the Smart TV market and how Samsung, Panasonic, et al will react.
