Rumour: Apple TV production under way in China

Monday, 28th May 2012 14:25 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Apple has started the “trial production stage” of Apple TV, according to WantChinaTimes (via Business Insider).

Foxconn has received the order from Apple to start the very stages of production on the sets, according to the report.

No further details were given on when the set would release, but BI says that Foxconn now working on the TV matches up with a timeline noted by Apple analyst Gene Munster, who said Apple TV would be announced in December and launch early next year.

Apple TV, which is said to involve the developer of iTunes, will also supposedly come with Siri support.

    Who here would actually be willing to pay the Apple tax just to have the brand on their TV? It’ll also probably be running iOS rather than OS X, so rather than a larger iMac, you’ll probably be looking at a huge iPad with a heavy focus on camera & voice control. Probably with a $1000 minimum price tag, & no network provider subsidizing this hefty price, I wouldn’t imagine it picking up too well.

    @3 hell no. But I have no doubt that a whole bunch of wannabe-cool types will.

    I remember when this site used to be all about PC and video games. Good times.

    #5 – A proper Apple TV could well see the company’s gaming drive come to life. Why redefine one industry when you can do two at the same price and time? They’ve been hiring lots of games industry types and don’t seem to have much to show for it, yet.

    @6, I bet, after the Apple tax, you could buy an equivalent tv & superior HTPC for around the same price as Apple’s possible offering.
