We have been anticipating a High Definition Television (HDTV) set from Apple for past few months. Now, Foxconn chairman Terry Gou has leaked information potentially confirming the existence of Apple’s HDTV.
At the very least it certainly confirms the chairman’s belief that Foxconn will be involved in the manufacturing of Apple’s much rumored HDTV.
In an interview published in the China Daily Gou said that Foxconn was making preparations for Apple’s new HDTV.
Gou said Foxconn is making preparations for iTV, Apple Inc’s rumored upcoming high-definition television, although development or manufacturing has yet to begin.
iTV reportedly features an aluminum construction, Siri, and FaceTime video calling
Foxconn’s recent 50-50 joint venture factory with Sharp in Japan is one of the preparations made for the new device, Gou added. — China Daily
Foxconn has been working with Apple for over five years. Foxconn’s employees should have understood how private Apple keeps information about forthcoming products. Especially employees as high up as Gou.
One should not expect Apple to comment on Gou’s comments. Nor one should expect iTV or Apple HDTV announcement anytime soon.
