Given that Foxconn is Apple’s primary manufacturer for pretty much a good majority of their products, many are assuming that if the rumored Apple television does exist, there is a good chance that Foxconn will be behind it as well. This coupled with recent reports of Foxconn looking to invest in more shares in Sharp have fueled the speculation and rumors as well. Perhaps looking to corroborate those rumors, analyst Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets has reported that Foxconn is expected to start receiving LCD TV panels from Sharp starting in Q3 2012. This has been pushed forward from the alleged Q4 shipment and could see the Apple television made in time for the 2012 holidays. Of course since these are merely the views of an analyst, they can hardly be called official information, but many had pegged the rumored Apple television for a release in 2012 (some have predicted 2013), so we guess we will have to wait and see if it pans out. Until then we suggest taking this information with a grain of salt for now.
