Apple Television Could Be Launched Later This Year

Smart TV

If you are a fan of Apple products then you will probably be hoping that this turns out to be true.

Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White reports that Apple could launch “Smart TV” – an Apple branded Television as early as this year, based on the data points he picked up at a China electronics trade show this week.

White reports:

“Our research suggests this Smart TV would go well beyond the miniature $99 second-generation Apple TV that the company released last fall and provide a full-blown TV product for consumers,” White said.

He went on to say that although Apple has long been projected by company watchers to enter the HDTV market, the Mac maker now appears to be “moving down this pace at a faster pace than the market expected.”

This is not the first time we are hearing rumors and speculations of Apple planning to make its own television. Back in 2009, there were reports about this possibility including a report from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Muster who thought this was a distinct possibility. White’s research note has just renewed those speculations again.

We would love to buy a television set made by Apple. What about you?
