We have long been hearing about an Apple TV or iTV to be on its way. However, so far, little have we known about it except rumors and speculations. But many, like us, do believe that the release of an Apple HDTV is definitely going to happen. Now, analyst Peter Misek, has stated that the TV from Apple is going to be called iPanel and the price tag will most probably be somewhere about $1,250.


Misek’s decision to call the upcoming Apple HDTV as iPanel, rather than iTV, is quite intriguing. Most of us had stuck to iTV, knowing that Apple likes to keep it simple, and consistent with its other products. However, Misek has some very valid reasons not to go for the name iTV. For instance, iTV is already used by at least two companies. And Apple may either have to buy the copyrights of the name from them, which can cost quite a fortune, or if Apple doesn’t, it runs the risk of being sued by those companies.

Also, another interesting reason that Misek gave was that by assigning the name iTV, we are limiting the scope of the HDTV. ‘It is a display, gaming center, media hub, computer, home automator, etc.’ and hence, he says, iTV is too inadequate as a name for the product.

Misek’s predictions do not end there and he goes on to claim that Apple’s HDTV will be available for some $1,250 and that Apple will start producing them, with an initial volume of 5 million in May.

Also, he said that IGZO displays will be used in Apple TV. We have seen IGZO displays in non-TV products but putting them up in a TV, much power-efficient as they are, would at best turn out to be an experiment. So at the end of the day, it is still all speculation and no facts about Apple’s HDTV.
