Apple, Asian suppliers test TV designs - report

Wednesday 12 December 2012 | 10:53 CET | News
Apple is in early stages of testing a few designs for large-screen, high-resolution TV sets with component suppliers in Asia, unnamed officials at some of the company's suppliers told the Wall Street Journal. Two people familiar with the matter said that iPhone and iPad assembler Hon Hai, known as Foxconn, has been collaborating with Sharp on the design of the new TV. Apple has been testing TV prototypes for years and generally tests and develops its products internally before testing with outside suppliers. CEO Tim Cook recently said in an NBC News interview that TV was an area of "intense interest", but he declined to elaborate. The Wall Street Journal reported in August that Apple was in talks with Time Warner Cable and other cable operators about allowing their subscribers to use an Apple set-top box. Apple sold 1.3 million of its current, USD 99 STB in the third quarter. The device allows users to view internet video on the TV screen, but not traditional TV channels.
