New Apple TV to launch alongside iPad 3 on March 7th?

As well as launching the new version of the iPad, Apple could refresh the Apple TV set-top box with 1080p video, Bluetooth 4.0 and new input methods which could even involve Siri

Apple may launch a new iteration of the Apple TV set-top box at the March 7th event which is likely to see the arrival of a brand new iPad tablet.

Reports claim that a brand-new hockey puck set-top box could include 1080p video for the first time, displacing the current model which is only able to play video at 720p.

According to 9to5Mac the new device will feature integrated Bluetooth 4.0, which will increase connectivity with other devices throughout the home. It would also sync almost instantly with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, compared with the 6 seconds it takes to hook up with current-generation Bluetooth tech.

The 9to5Mac report suggests that an FM radio transmitter will also be on board the new device, meaning there'll be the radio support that Apple has abandoned on recent iOS devices.

Other rumours suggest that a next-generation Apple TV device would also boast the A5 processor and more input methods which could involve a voice-controlled remote with Siri capabilities.

It seems we'll find out in a little over a week.
