Apple Television Expected by Mid-2012, TV Makers Already ‘Scrambling’

Apple Television Expected by Mid-2012, TV Makers Already ‘Scrambling’

Production of Apple’s rumored connected television is set to begin in February at Sharp’s plant in Japan, reports AppleInsider. Rival HDTV makers are therefore desperate to find out what the new TV will actually do, with Android as potential operating system for rival devices.

Apple is expected to partner with Sharp for TFT-LCD panels. The TV could also feature hands free control using Siri. The mid-2012 release date is a more aggressive prediction than others have given for the release, with the New York Times claiming that it could be launched in late 2012 and released at the start of 2013.

I’m looking forward to whatever Apple has in store, and if the TV features full internet access and apps, then it could spell the end for traditional computers (or at least traditional television). The TV would become the digital hub, with iPads and iPhones being the satellite devices.
