Apple iTV Release May Be Getting Close

Beginning in 2009, rumors of a forthcoming Apple iTV have been circulating amongst industry analysts and through the internet.

At one point, Best Buy conducted an odd survey whether consumers would purchase such a TV. Then, at another point, there was a story that some Canadian cable TV providers were testing a supposed Apple iTV prototype. Then, at the end of 2012, in a high-profile TV interview, Apple CEO Tim Cook "alluded" that changing how we experience TV was "an area of intense interest". This was almost immediately followed by new speculation that Foxconn and Sharp were involved in testing a possible Apple iTV platform.

Now, according to Macworld, the latest significant development is Apple's hiring of a former LG and Samsung OLED Technology expert.

Although OLED technology has been used in smartphones, tablets, and other portable devices for some time, it is just now finally starting to be successfully integrated into a large screen TV platform, with LG and Samsung leading the way. This makes the hiring of someone who is on the forefront of large screen OLED applications important as it may also indicate that Apple is moving more aggressively to deliver a large screen iTV with OLED technolgy.

The question is, if the Apple iTV really does materialize, will it have been worth the wait?

For more details on this, and other possible developments that might just bring the iTV to market soon, read the full Macworld Report.
