Foxconn Chairman Confirms Existence of Apple HDTV
Foxconn chairman Terry Gou leaked information potentially confirming the existence of Apple's HDTV. At the very least it confirms the chairmans belief that Foxconn will be involved in the manufacturing of Apple’s much rumored HDTV.
In an interview published in the China Daily Gou said that Foxconn is making preparations for Apple’s new HDTV.
Gou said Foxconn is making preparations for iTV, Apple Inc's rumored upcoming high-definition television, although development or manufacturing has yet to begin.
iTV reportedly features an aluminum construction, Siri, and FaceTime video calling
Foxconn's recent 50-50 joint venture factory with Sharp in Japan is one of the preparations made for the new device, Gou added. — China Daily
Don’t expect Apple to comment on Gou’s comments, and don’t expect and iTV or Apple HDTV announcement anytime soon either. This is the most concrete information we’re likely to get concerning the existence of Apple’s HDTV outside of an official announcement and the constant piecing together of rumors concerning Apple’s supply chain.

If at all true, this just helps the apple buzz in the wood works. Good for business.

Hmm....makes me wonder if Apple wanted it to leak to judge if there would be enough consumer interest.
In all honesty, I can't think of any features that would make me want to buy their TV over a less expensive VISIO model.

That he thinks it'll be called iTV is enough to not believe this

Meh. 46" Samsung LED 1080p 120Hz and a Mac Mini. Probably $1000 cheaper and a better option. I'm sure the iTV will be like the AppleTV in that you can't watch non-iTunes purchased video.

Sharp Quattron iTV?
I had Sharp HDTV, don't care for it and put it in the library so I can get a new one from Samsung.

We need ways to watch different things, not different ways to watch the same things.

Well, it will have higher resolution than regular HDTV, probably high enough to display the videos you record on the New iPad natively. You will need this higher resolution because of how big the TV is getting, 55" is becoming the standard size I am in the market for 80"+ When the TV is that huge you really need super high resolution so it looks right.
