Apple iTV to have Siri and iSight Camera, look like Mac Cinema Display?

AppleTV_Mockup.jpgApple iTV, where art thou? In this world of iPhone 5, iPad Mini and MacBook rumours, it’s sometimes easy to forget about Apple’s oft-rumoured entry into the home cinema market. But a new report into the possible feature list of the Apple iTV suggests there is still much to be excited about.

Cult of Mac are reporting that one of their sources has seen the mythic HDTV, stating that it looks much like an oversized Apple Cinema Display.

Though no mention of iOS software is made (nor specific technical specifications) the source did state that an iSight camera is built into the bezel, paired with face tracking technology that can zoom in on a caller’s head and make video conferencing from the comfort of an arm chair a piece of cake.

If the leak is accurate, Apple iTV owners may be able to do away with remote controls too, as Siri voice control could make navigating the channels and searching for iTunes content as simple as calling commands to the television.

As for sizes, Foxconn, who would likely be the manufacturers, have the ability to build displays up to 60-inches in size after investing $1.6 billion in Sharp’s TV unit. With tentative rumoured release windows of 2013, it may be time to start saving up for what we’d expect to be a very different, very expensive new line of televisions.
