But do we know what kinda display Apple will use for TV? that can be a critical factor to choose or not to choose Foxconn.

Connection with iStore would definitely make sense for Apple.  An "onDemand" type of user experience that minimizes desktop interaction would put internet TV in a league with cable and broadcast, and no doubt Apple wants to be in the forefront of that.

I could see the appeal as well. Right now, the area behind my TV is a rats nest of wires connecting components together, including cables that are sittiing there for the convenience of connnecting to my laptop when desired.

@Rich: I believe the Apple system is like a cable box that you hook up to get Internet television. I think what Tam is talking about is the manufacture of a TV set, rather than a TV protocol. I had the same question about Intel TV, and from what I can tell, the systems (cable boxes) basically don't require you to hook your PC up to the TV for Internet content. But I believe the content has to come from providers, and that means a fee. For instance, I'm sure you can download from the iStore with Apple TV.

I don't know if the current system interfaces with the iPod/iPad. I would imagine it does. I'll see what I can find out.

Getting into LCD manufacturing means Foxconn/Hon Hai is getting into the sets. If Apple made a TV set with all the electronics embedded (lose the cable box) I could see the appeal.

Wow. I'm actually shocked to hear that Apple might come up with it's own TV. Given the move towards IP TV, this may not be the smartest decision. However, considering Apple's ability to come up with unique features, we can expect something that's much more than traditional TV. Really excited to see how the product turns out to be when they launch it.

A true internet smart TV may be in the pipeline  and Foxconn with Apple partneship must be contemplating to have a captive LCD supply for this product.

Yes I also feel the same. I think its a good move if Apple takes it so they can diversify their market towards other segments as well.

"that Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) will bring a TV to market soon." Αnd if this became true, I think it will be a successful move for Apple. Maybe is the right move at the proper time for Apple.
