Apple TV vs. iTV From Apple – What Is On The Horizon From Apple?

Rumoring to make a new hybrid device combining Apple TV with an HDTV – could Apple be working on the Frankenstein of television technology?

As rumors and leaks continue around the web on what Apple is up to on a possible TV model, investors are at the moment eating the news up with Apple shares on the climb today.

But, back to the development world, just what type of vision could we see in a tangible “Apple Television” set? Let’s scan some of the headlines of what is going on.

The Apple iTV Look

While some say it is just a larger version of an iPad, others point to a first release of a 42 inch screen. That is a big dependency, but another location has reported a 50 inch version, with possibilities of 32 inch and 37 inch respectively.

More rumors say that the screen will be produced by LG and use the company’s new Gorilla Glass 2, along with OLED (organic light emitting diode) and 1080p display.

The Apple iTV Features

Apple’s new iTV could also make it a whole new world for apps. Think about the massive developer community and the thousands of apps for iPhone and iPad already available. A chance for TV apps? Yes, the world needs it.

A remote that could control multiple devices, a built in camera for FaceTime, and an unknown price point round out some of the most talked about items around the Web, but as always, it is a wait and see game from Apple.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Do you think producers for example Google Android, BlackBerry or Apple iPhone, are really interested in consumer behavior; or they just make what they can and hope for the best. Guys like Steve Jobs certainly changed the way the typical consumers use stuff. I believe many people don’t even come close to working with the functions the device provides. I question whether or not the big mobile phone makers separate it down to demographics, like, so many people use a digital camera, such and such a percentage go online, or they just throw as much at it as they can.
