There is good news waiting for those, who have penchant for extremely innovative Apple’s devices. Terry Gou (Foxconn Chairman) recently confirmed in a press conference that Foxconn is on the verge of embarking production of iTV. Gou further added that Foxconn is preparing its facilities for High definition iTV.
An English daily newspaper in China called China Daily, published Terry Gou’s comments in its newspaper.
Gou said Foxconn is making preparations for iTV, Apple Inc’s rumored upcoming high-definition television, although development or manufacturing has yet to begin.
iTV Features are undoubtedly going to be sophisticated and impressive. According to the sources iTV features are going to include aluminum casing, an advanced iOS, cutting edge speech recognition technology-Siri, superior iSight camera to facilitate FaceTime video chats.
Unfortunately we are still left with speculation on the exact availability of iTV release date. Previous iTV rumors suggested that iTV may arrive anytime during fourth quarter of this year but it is quite apparent that Apple won’t like to hurry as whatever it does, it does to the best of its ability. Most of the sources are predicting that 2014 would be a year by which Apple would take such an ambitious leap.
Perhaps, rumors of iTV first started surfacing when Walter Isaacson ( official biographer of Steve Jobs) revealed that Steve Jobs felt that he had ‘cracked’ the secret to a simple and elegant HDTV set. It is known to all that Foxconn is a world’s largest maker of electronic components but besides that Foxconn is also a leading Asian manufacturing partner of Apple.
Apple recognized the potential of Sharp’s technology as it could provide Apple, much thinner and powerful LCD’s. Apple wanted sharp to manufacture Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) panels for its HDTV set so when Foxconn acquired 11% stake in Sharp and both, Foxconn and Sharp did strike a joint venture deal, many sources sensed that Apple Tv could be that potential reason behind this deal.
There was a report which claimed an insider has seen an Apple TV prototype, he said that it resembles an Apple monitor but the only difference is that it appears much bigger.
So far, Apple has been successful with its innovative devices and has gained sufficient confidence of consumers, no wonder why it is appearing confident this time as well. Apple is champing at the bit because it knows it can deliver something exclusive and remarkable.
