RUMOR: Apple Working on Television for Early 2012 Release
Posted on August 28, 2011 by eli courey
We’ve heard these rumors before, that an Apple-branded television would be released in the near future. The rumors are always started by “analysts” who think they know how Apple thinks.
Venture capitalists Stewart Alsop recently said that “he has heard multiple sources throughout Silicon Valley that the Apple television project is underway.”
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster cites component suppliers as well as an internal Apple source to suggest that Apple is planning on launching a television sometime in the 2012/2013 timeframe.
I personally don’t believe any of these rumors because I don’t think it would make much sense for Apple to sell an actual television right now. I think they are going to keep working on improving Apple TV, the $99 device that connects to any HDMI television.
