Apple TV Coming This Christmas, Production Starts In May


Business Insider are reporting that come Christmas, households around the world will have something revolution to watch media on: The long-rumored Apple TV.

That’s according to Jefferies analyst Peter Misek, basing his prediction on revelation that specialty components have begun to ship to Apple’s Asia panel suppliers with polarized films, filters, and IGZO components starting to move in small quantities.

Misek believes production of the TV will commence in May, with 2M to 5M builds likely for launch.

Will Apple change the world once more?

    I definatley wont Ernice. What exactly will it do that you cant already do on current TV’s or through Netflix etc??! and Apple did not change the world!!!!

    Haha. Well they certainly changed the way we use technology, and I know you’re saying that now, but I’m hearing some things about the Apple TV that will totally blow folks away.

    nah im not convinced. I hate apple more than i hate xbox lol. And they didnt change technology either, just took existing technology / prducts and made them shiny. Oh and restricted it along the way. My HTC smart phone has an actual in built app that shares music. all you need to do is press a button, choose who to share music with, select share with bluetooth/3g/wifi and boom, all my albums are on my mates smartphone and vice versa. Would you ever see that on an iphone/ipod??! of course not, how would they make money out of that?!!

    Like your last point, Fox. Apple is ridiculously closed. But give props where props is due: They’ve done good things for the industry, don’t you think? In fact if we’re not careful, they’ll disrupt the games industry. All you have to do is listen to Epic Games talk and you’ll understand what’s going on with iOS and it’s stratospheric rise.

    apple could easily break into the industry if they wanted to.
    kinda already have, and their devices are becoming much and much more like todays consoles every day.
    infinity blade 2 looks good enough to be a ps3 game!
    cant wait to see what the version for the ipad 3 looks like!
    4X the pixel density of infinity blade 2……. GOD DAYM!
