A TV From Apple?
Is Apple working on an actual television for the first time? It may very well be, according to a top industry analyst who covers Apple.
According to Fortune magazine, Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster wrote in a note to clients last week that he sees Apple entering the TV market by 2011, with a product that will incorporate a DVR and other home media functions. Munster also predicted that Apple will soon introduce a new version of the existing Apple TV product that will feature a built-in TV imput and DVR for the first time.
Munster based the prediction on recent patents filed by Apple, its LCD screen partnership with LG, and the company's continuing commitment to the Apple TV product.
