We are expecting Apple to launch their first HDTV some time this year or early next year, and now according on one analyst, we wont see Apple’s new HTDV until 2014.
According to Mark Moskowitz, and Analyst from J.P. Morgan we wont see the new Apple TV until some time in 2014, although we may see a more advanced Apple TV set top box first before the actual HDTV launches.
“We believe that the economics of the TV industry are strained, despite there being suitable offerings from the likes of Sony, Sharp, and Samsung,” the analyst said. “Overall, we would be surprised to see Apple enter a new market unless the value proposition could support double-digit operating margins. In TVs, that bogey is rather elusive, in our view.”
We are looking forward to seeing what Apple’s first HDTV will be like, when it will launch is anyone’s guess at the moment.
