Apple’s iTelevision Revolution Gathers Pace
The war over your living room is about to kickoff with major players Apple, Google, Amazon and Microsoft all likely to launch fresh salvos aimed at revolutionizing the TV-watching experience. Apple has long been rumoured to have a television set in the pipeline, and recent news coming from display manufacturers only serves to re-enforce the belief that Apple is on the verge of getting into the Television hardware game.
“We expect Apple to debut the iTV by the end of this year, and it is likely to adopt Sharp’s 10th generation TFT production line to produce TFT LCDs for iTVs,” Daiwa Capital Markets said in a research note seen by Reuters, referring to a technology that uses thin film transistors for improved LCD image quality.
“We believe Hon Hai will have better vertical integration in manufacturing for the Apple iTV following its stake acquisition of Sharp’s (LCD) plant (in Japan),” the report said. - Globe and Mail
