As far as price points, giving Apple's history, even at 32" to 37", we would see $1,200 to $1,500. You're not just purchasing hardware. Apple's software is just as much a commodity as their hardware (to them, not us).
As for the size, I couldn't care less about size. Apple has been and should continue to remain in the mobile market with iPods, iPads, and iPhones. Apple TV set-tops can still be mobile and those devices aren't necessarily popular.
Resolution, I would assume, would be similar to their LCD and LED monitors for their Macs. While it wouldn't start out as "Retina" at first, later refreshes would see crisp non-pixelated awesomeness of Retina HD displays.
If you have the Apple TV set-top, there is absolutely no reason to purchase the Apple TV if they choose to develop such a monstrous thing. IMHO

Smart TV's are a stupid idea. I don't care who makes them. I just don't see why anyone would think this is a good idea.
Just let me buy my $100 box to plug in. As long as Apple keeps the separate ATV box, they can fail at selling TVs all they want for all I care.

The prices are not going to be as high as Bang&Olufsen TVs. And B&O stil makes alot of money. I don't think apple is going to fail at selling TVs

A decent size and quality TV these days is about $800 plus an additional $99 for Apple TV set-top. $900 is better than my assumed $1200 to $1500 Apple Television (and for a max of the claimed 37"). IMHO

Just my imagination going wild

iOS is extremely easy and fluid in the UI arena, but how do you integrate that same UI into a TV?
I still think that from an economical standpoint, finding alternatives to mimick or duplicate would be more financially responsible. IMHO
I suppose we'll have to let it play out and see how it goes. Personally, depending its success, I'll wind up getting the 2nd Gen. We all know how that goes. Lol.
