|A mock-up of a iTV, looks very believable.|
- Apple already has an Apple TV, they have an eye on TV and know they can do it better. Apple has always striven to revolutionize daily lives such as the Mac, followed by the iPod, the iPhone, and now iPad. Adding a TV to that mix makes sense.
- People buy TV’s usually every 2-4 years depending on several circumstances. This falls right into the yearly, or every other year update that Apple likes to achieve with their products. Beyond that, Apple has the mobile software to make internet TV’s of today look like a giant joke. Yes, TV’s are always changing, but a 1080p, 120 htz HDTV with a great OS that actually works can and will last longer than just a few months. If Apple does it right, they could take the TV to a whole new level.
- Speaking about terrible UI on Internet TV’s, has anyone ever really wanted to use them? Seriously, they are slow, clunky, ugly, and unusable. Samsung has done a great job with a newer OS adding Skype and a Xbox Kinect like gestures. This is what I believe Apple could do, but better and here is how. They add a modified version of iOS with FaceTime, Weather, Stocks, iMessage, and Mail all controlled by Siri, hand gestures, or using Air Play on any mobile iOS device as a remote to send messages, play content, or game.
I believe Apple is in fact working on an iTV that will take a TV and make it the central hub of communication and entertainment that will change how we look at TV’s. The potential for an iTV to replace Apple TV and expand even further into the Market makes this a very smart prediction. However, only time will tell if Apple will indeed ever release an iTV. We will certainly know more after this years WWDC. Well thats all I have folks, don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and on Facebook. Peace Apple Nation!
