Foxconn Technology Group founder and Chief Executive Terry Gou has apparently gone on record and stated that the company will soon initiate the manufacturing process for an Apple television. Reportedly, he said that production is yet to have begun and as China Daily (via BGR) reports; the electronics manufacturer is in the midst of preparing its infrastructure for Apple’s HDTV. The website also claims that Gou stated the above mentioned comments while he was present at a press conference in Shanghai on Friday.
Apple’s long rumored HDTV or ‘iTV’ as it is often known is rumored to look like the company’s current LED Cinema Display. As far as rumors go, the iTV is said to feature an aluminum casing, it will run Apple’s iOS, voice-powered remote control with the help of Siri which is said to be on board as well and an iSight camera for FaceTime video chats. Previous rumors indicated that we could be seeing the iTV in Q4 of this year but apparently there have also been information flitting about the internet that suggest that we might not be seeing it until 2014. However, if what Gou said is in fact true, then it looks like we might be closer to it than we think.
