We did not hear anything new about an rumored Apple Television. Now an analyst report sees Apple to release a 60-inch Apple TV this year.
The Apple Television rumor is back with a big bang. Topeka analyst Brian White says in a report to clients that Apple will release a 60-inch Apple TV this year. The analyst says that the Apple iTV ecosystem is a major innovation and will revolutionize the TV experience forever.
Brian White does not stop there. He also says that we will control the 60-inch Apple TV with an iRing controller and the Apple iTV comes bundled with a mini iTV, which sounds more like an iPad. The iWatch will also work with the iTV says the analyst.
Siri and FaceTime are supposed to be important features of the iTV.
BGR has posted the report.
A 60-inch Apple TV would be very expensive and would put the product into a niche. I therefore have my doubts about this report. Brain White sees the price range between $1,500 and $2,500. There are possibly service subsidies that could bring the price down. I prefer a box and have the freedom to select a TV panel. I am pretty sure Apple is upgrading the Apple TV to offer whatever an iTV would offer on functionality.
