Ikea’s Uppleva TV which was announced a while back just got detailed a bit further. The television which is said to be coming to the US in April 2013, will come in four different sizes that range from 24-inches to 46-inches. In addition to what we already know about the Uppleva is that the Swedish inspired television will come in an ‘all-in-one design’ that features cabinets or storage spaces that come with the television integrated into it. Of course the additional furniture that you require is customizable. Now apparently, we have received more details about what Uppleva TV will be bringing to the table.
The television itself which is a product of China’s TLC can reportedly be used to access videos through popular video streaming apps such as YouTube, Vimeo and DailyMotion. According to a spokesperson from Ikea, the applications will vary with each country but the Uppleva will come with about 20 applications per country. Some of the other applications that are said to be included are QTom, a German Vevo competitor and TuneIn radio. On top of that, reports suggest that applications will also be used to facilitate music playback, games, VOD and catch-up video playback. The spokesperson apparently also added that the Uppleva will come with an open Web browser which is allegedly ‘Opera for TV’. For now, that is all the information we have received about the TV but after its roll out to selected stores in Italy, France, Germany, Poland and Sweden next month, we can expect to see it in the US in April 2013.
