Manufacturing giant Foxconn are preparing to build the new Apple Television. According to China Daily company chief Terry Gou said that they are preparing to build the new Apple Television.
Gou held a news conference in Shanghai regarding their plans for the future. During the chat he let it slip that Foxconn are ready to start producing the Apple television which Steve Jobs mentioned before his death. China Daily added that “development or manufacturing has yet to begin”.
Gou would have insider knowledge of the development of such a critical product for Apple, but it is surprising that he would mention it in a conference as Apple are normally very strict about details of unreleased products. Apple have yet to even acknowledge the television.
Rumours have been circulating now for months that the upcoming high definition television will feature a camera for FaceTime and even have support for SIRI, the Apple assistant. Latest rumours would suggest that the set will have access to the Apple Store. Perhaps indicating internal storage.
Jobs spoke to Walter Isaacson in his biography saying “I’d like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use. It would be seamlessly synched with all of your devices and with iCloud. It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it.”
Kitguru says: There are no indications when production will start, although some sources claim it will be 2013.
