Ah, Christmas. The season for mass consumerism and justified greed. What better time to announce the release date of Apple’s first television set? At least, that’s what certain people are claiming.
According to Press Blue, Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster apparently has intimated that the Apple Television project would most likely be realized sometime during the holiday season of 2013. (Gee, I wonder why.)
Additionally, he also outlined several features he thinks will be vital for the Apple Television’s global popularity.
“We expect the beauty of the design to be a feature, but the most important thing will be the ability to use the TV as the main interface for the living room across multiple devices. We believe that the TV will include Siri and FaceTime. The biggest item unlikely to come with the TV will be unbundled channels.”
The price, however, if Munster’s predictions prove accurate, may be a bit of a hindrance. The 55-inch Apple Television is expected to retail for $2,000 while the 47-inch version may well come up to $1500. That said, there’s no way to validate these claims so be certain to process everything with a serving of salt.
