Rumor: Foxconn Has Orders for Apple TVs
Although there are smart TVs here and there, access to plenty of Internet-connected content, and promising software such as Google TV in development, the industry is ripe for a TV that serves as a family’s computing and entertainment hub. Apple has certainly created and collected all the right pieces: Siri, display technology, a cloud-based (versus device-based) hub for files and services, a unified ecosystem of operating systems and devices, and an app and content store with a delivery system.
Whether or not Apple is about to revolutionize the TV market remains to be seen, but--like ‘em or hate ‘em--the company has been known to release products that shake up their respective market segments. There’s a good chance this will be one of them.
