Apple to unveil 42-inch and 50-inch iTVs?by Steven Mostyn - Jan 5 2012, 18:21
Expectation is big where Apple’s upcoming line of high-definition iTV products is concerned, and that expectation just got even bigger—quite literally—according to a BGR report.
Specifically, said report claims recently knighted Apple design guru Jonathan Ive is busy crafting two eye-pleasingly large iTV models, one sized at 42 inches and one measuring a mouthwatering 50 inches.
Word of the large-scale panels overshadows existing whispers that previously suggested Apple is prepping a first wave of HD sets measuring in at 32 and 37 inches, both of which were earmarked for a summer launch.
Adding to the weight of BGR’s initial coverage, USA Today cites an anonymous industry insider in its claim that Sir Jonathan already has a 50-inch iTV set in his secure studio.
In related news, Apple’s latest iTV offerings are also expected to include voice-recognition controls via Siri, on-board Wi-Fi, support for iOS software applications, and compatibility with Apple services such as AirPlay, iCloud and iTunes.
