According to a report on Chinese news site 21cbh.com, relayed by Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White, Sharp is stepping up production of LCD TV panels for Apple’s television, and is on track to deliver them to Foxconn starting next quarter.
We’ve heard that Apple will also unveil the operating system for the rumored Apple Television alongside iOS 6 at WWDC Keynote on Monday.
A couple of days back we told you about how Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster, a long time Apple analyst, was confident that an Apple Television is now just a matter of “when” rather than “if.”
Business Insider has the entire note from Munster in which he speculates that Apple’s software offering with the television will make it revolutionary.
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster is fairly confident that Apple will unveil a Television set late this year, and put it on sale by the first half of 2013.
His increased confidence comes after analyzing information from component suppliers and listening to Tim Cook’s comments at the D10 conference a few days ago.
Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher interviewed Apple’s CEO Tim Cook at the AllThingsD’s D10 Conference earlier today.
They asked Tim Cook questions about a range of topics. While he dodged questions about upcoming Apple products such as the rumored Apple Television (as you would expect), he did seem to hint at the possibility of Facebook Integration coming to iOS and improvements to Siri during his interview.
Until now, there has been several rumors and speculations that have claimed that Apple will launch their television set later this year.
Ever since an excerpt from Steve Jobs biography revealed that he felt that he had finally cracked integrated Television sets, the chatter about Apple possibly releasing television sets has got louder.
It has been speculated that Apple will launch the television set, which could include Siri for extensive voice control rather than the conventional remote control later this year.
