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.
