From the sounds of it, the fine folks at Hon Hai are “testing” Apple Televisions. According to anonymous sources at the company, the fabled Apple Television is starting to take shape, but don’t expect a release any time in 2013.
From Focus Taiwan:
[quote]“However, the Hon Hai source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the initial phase of tests on the TVs has kicked off … Nevertheless, the source said it is unlikely that shipments of the appliances will begin as soon as the end of next year … The source also predicted that Apple TV shipments could be huge and that new Apple TV-related products might be put on display at the well-known international consumer electronics trade fair, CES, to be held in Las Vegas in January.”[/quote]
They had our attention until all the talk about Apple TV related products going on display at CES. I’m not entirely sure what that even means when I read it. Are we talking third-party remote controls, bluetooth keyboards, or potential gaming pads that are compatible with bluetooth and iOS? As cool as that may be, it sounds pretty unlikely. Apple doesn’t show their hand before they get a chance to announce a new product. You just know that Apple would have a “Made For Apple Television” licensing program too if this was all legitimate.
I dunno, this whole thing sounds like bunk the more I write…
