According to the Globe and Mail, two companies already have Apple’s new HDTV in their labs, and are testing out the devices, the companies in question are Canada’s Rogers Communications and BCE Inc.
The report says that the HDTV has some of the features we have previously heard rumored, Apple’s Siri and hands gestures are apparently used to control the device.
An on-screen keyboard, meanwhile, can also be activated in a similar manner, allowing viewers to surf the web, conduct video chats and use social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook – all without any physical interface.
Apple are apparently looking for other partners to work with on their HDTV and they are not closed to doing it with one company or two.
It isn’t clear as yet whether the information came from, although if it turns out to be correct it certainly sounds very interesting, we were expecting the device to be controlled by Siri, but the bit about hand gestures is something new.
We are expecting to see the first Apple HDTV some time this year, when that will be nobody knows at the moment, as soon as we get some more information we will let you guys know.
