Over the last few months there have been many rumors suggesting that Apple might be involved in the production of a full fledged HDTV set. The company presumably wants to increase its presence in the television market, and perhaps it can’t do that with the Apple TV, its $99 set-top box. Rumors about the HDTV have waned slightly in recent weeks, nevertheless, the latest comes from Taiwanese publication Economic Daily News. It is said that Apple is working with Foxconn, Innoloux, G-Tech Optoelectronics and Corning of Gorilla Glass fame for its HDTV which is widely referred to as the iTV.
The report further suggests that Apple will release iTV in the first half of 2014. 55″ and 60″ models will reportedly be released first. Foxconn is expected to manufacture the device and display panels might be provided by Innolux. Previous rumors suggest that Apple might introduce a whole new way of interacting with a TV set, some believe that Siri-like voice based technology will debut with Apple’s first ever conventional TV set. Information about pricing is not available right now. The company itself has kept a lid on any information regarding its TV plans, be it another set-top box or a full fledged TV set.
