Apple HDTV release mid-2012?
Analysts have now come forward with what they believe to be fairly solid predictions for the arrival of the Apple HDTV, marking Apple's entry to the TV market
Apple could well be launching their own HDTV as soon as mid-2012 if one analyst is to be believed.
The source comes from analytics company Jefferies & Company and claims that the Apple HDTV could well be put into production as early as February with a mid-2012 release expected.
In terms of specs the analyst was unable to say anymore except that the screen would most likely be supplied by Sharp, it is unknown as to whether this will also feature 3D or what price-range Apple will be looking at, however if their displays are anything to go by, excpect it to be a premium priced product.
One of the more interesting comments made by the analyst however was that Apple's HDTV would heavily rely on the technology that's used in the iPhone 4S's Siri, utilising the software to allow users to control the Apple TV simply by voice. This would directly then compete with technologies such as the Microsoft Kinect which already allows voice-control of the Xbox on a TV.
