The Rumored Apple Television Set...


Rumors of  Apple expanding their product line and creating an 'actual' TV set has been floating around the web for some time now... Turns out this rumor may be coming to a reality and hitting our living rooms as soon as 2012... And it's no surprise that Apple wants to take over your living room, with the revamped Apple TV, upgraded iTunes, variety of Apps, and the convenience/portability of the iPad makes bringing the computer and digital media into the living room a comfortable experience... so adding a TV set to the mix could be the next logical step... 
When Apple first introduced the iPod, Mr. Jobs stated that digital music has been around for a while, but there isn't a 'market leader'... over a decade later, the name iPod has become a brand similar to how Kleenex is to tissue paper. Could Apple have another 'market leading' product when they unveil their own Television Set...?
According a report from AppleInsider, Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty announced in a statement to investors on Friday that supply chain vendors have indicated that Apple is working on some form of SmartTV prototype.  Not much information was available beyond the rumors of the prototype, but Ms. Huberty did speculate that the ultimate reason for Apple to do this would be seeing it combine “TV/Video content, gaming, DVR, as well as other features like apps and FaceTime into one product.”
If this rumor holds true... then Apple will be one step ahead (as usual) of other companies that push to create all-in-one televisions, creating a whole new category in their already prestigious line of products. As this story unfolds we'll see if another rumor comes to light of Apple working with Sony to develop these anticipated televisions.... 


We'll have to wait and see :)
