Gou was recently quoted saying that preparations were being made for an Apple ‘iTV’, which included buying a significant stake in Sharp for access to LCD displays. Foxconn is working with Sharp in Japan to prepare for production, according to China Daily.
China Daily says that the ‘iTV’ will feature aluminium construction, Siri voice control and FaceTime video calling, and will most likely be a much larger version of Apple’s display. Apple may also be in talks with a movie channel about a streaming content deal.
It’s been reported that Apple’s ‘iTV’ will be available by the end of 2012, even though development or production hasn’t begun. Other reports suggests Apple’s ‘iTV’ won’t be available for customers until 2013 or 2014.
