And could be released this year.
Analysts said that the new name of the Apple television set is iPanel and could be launched at the end of this year with and $800 price tag
More info about the rumored Apple television set. Now, analyst Peter Misek of Jeffries has estimated a price tag of $800 for the upcoming device that will be launched at the end of 2012 under the most-probably name of iPanel.
According to Redmondpie:
Only time will tell if he was right.Although the tech world is getting more and more frustrated with its inability garner a shred of insight regarding Apple’s purported connected TV ventures, analyst Peter Misek of Jefferies – a global securities and investment banking group – has increased his price target for AAPL to $800, on the basis that a TV set from Apple is to materialize in the fourth quarter of this year.
Misek has "enough confidence" that the product – which he describes as "far more than a TV," will launch in Q4 2012 – just in time for the holiday season. He also reckons the name "iPanel" would be better suited than the rumored "iTV," since "TV," by name, automatically gives limiting connotations.
