Terry Gou, head of the Foxconn factory where the majority of Apple’s consumer tech products are manufactured, has apparently confirmed the existence of the Apple iTV HDTV. Not only that, but he’s claimed his factory are preparing to put the screens together.
According to China Daily, Gou stated that his company was “making preparations for iTV”, and that the partnership with Sharp for a new Japanese factory in Japan was in order to get his resources up to scratch in time for the start of the production process. Sharp’s IGZO panels, which allow for excellent brightness and power efficiency levels, are expected to feature.
Recently, Cult of Mac sources claimed to have seen a prototype Apple iTV, complete with Siri voice control, FaceTime video chat and gesture based navigation features.
An optimistic Q4 release window is now being suggested.
