    Default Apple Television to Be Introduced 'Months' Before Sales Begin


    While still unconfirmed by Apple, you would be hard-pressed to find an industry analyst or supply chain source that doesn't believe that Apple will soon unveil an iOS-powered connected HDTV that will dramatically change the living room as we know it.

    That said, much debate persists regarding the alleged release timeframe of this so-called "iTV." Although most insiders project a late 2012 or early 2013 launch window, new reports suggest that Apple may publicly confirm and tease the forthcoming iTV launch months before the project is available for purchase to consumers.

    Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets told investors Tuesday that Apple will likely follow its established course when the first iPhone and iPad were revealed. Both products were displayed publicly months before they became available to the masses. The iTV will also likely have a protracted walk down the red carpet before the flatscreens finally debut in our homes and places of work.

    With that being said, speculation is rampant that the iTV may officially be unveiled at WWDC next month - although that is purely speculative with little credible evidence to suggest such a reality transpiring so soon.

    As MMi reported earlier today, the Apple HDTV is believed to be undergoing "trial production" at Foxconn as we speak.

    Only if you buy them through iTunes

    The fanbois will rush to buy this and replace it every 12 months, the rest of the world will wait until their current TV explodes

    Of course we need Apple to disrupt and innovate in the TV market. Look at what it has done to the mobile phone market! Look at the evolution of mobile phones from 2003-2007 then compare it to 2007-2011. The reason for disruption in the TV market should be clear.

    It's a new product line, it only makes sense to announce it months before the sales begin.

    i think the idea is that you will pay for exactly what you want. nothing more, nothing less. so if you want to subscribe to hob, bbc and espy, but not fox, wfaa or hist then you won't have to.

    well naturally they should reveal it first! its not exactly going to be something you can buy without saving money (at least for the average person).. not saying other apple products arent expensive but a tv thats apple will cost a lot...
