Apple Television Set Confirmed By Foxconn Chairman

Until now, there has been several rumors and speculations that have claimed that Apple will launch their television set later this year.

But looks like Terry Gou – chairman of Foxconn – Apple’s largest manufacturing partner in China has inadvertently confirmed that Apple is going to launch a television set.

China Daily reports that Gou claimed that Foxconn is making preparations for Apple’s television set, and will be working with Sharp for the LCD display technology.

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.

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.

Cult of Mac reported earlier in the week, that according to their “well-placed source” who has actually seen the prototype of the rumored Apple Television, it looks like a big Thunderbolt Display and will offer features such as FaceTime video calls with sophisticated facial recognition and Siri.
