It has been reported by AllThingsD, on a just recent research that is noted by an analyst named Peter Misek, that suggests that manufacturers are already basically scrambling and shaking in their boots in a reaction to the claims that Apple is in preporations to enter the television set market very soon. Rather than being innovators on their own, these competitors are just focused on seeing what exactly will be doing to try to revolutionize this industry.
“Based on our discussions, interestingly other TV manufacturers have begun a scrambling search to identify what iTV will be and do,” says Misek. “They hope to avoid the fate of other industries and manufacturers who were caught flat footed by Apple.”
It is noted by Misek, that it appears that Sharp is revamping their LCD lineup to be suited for Apple’s own needs, with a mass production on the lineup, that is to be targetted for a February 2012 release. This kind of development would mean a product release like this at this time would be somewhere in the middle of next year. Other rumors previously made normally claimed that Apple may announce their television set by the late 2012 range and release the product by the earlier 2013 year range.
And if these are or aren’t Apple’s plans, it is suggested by Misek that any competitors will be most likely be around six to twelve months behind with their own competitive products to counter Apple, which gives Apple a huge advantage over the marketplace if they truely offer a very revolutionairy newer product.
The most visible company to be a competitor to Apple is Sony, which seeks to start off Apple’s potential entrance to a blockbuster experience in entering the market, with the development plans of making a “four screen” display which would be across TV’s, tablets, computers, and phones in the investigation of TV-based services in being displays in Web-based methods that would be enabling consumers to bypass any of the local cable companies in the consumers areas.
Apple’s TV set up box allowed Apple to dive into the television market with TV content that was available within the iTunes Store, though Apple’s biggest plans are to be said to be alot more adventurous, which involves actual TV sets that have the Siri technology built right in, which sets the functionality of that new technology to much greater lengths. Siri is obviously what is used in the iPhone 4S, which is exclusive to that specific smartphone. Apple is also being reported to be developing a newer technology to deliver content to their Television sets and they have shown lots of interest in the “best of TV’ packages of different TV shows, though the content providers must agree upon this kind of stuff, to allow such a plan.
It always takes time for these kinds of product releases, like with the iTunes Music Store, Apple had to get so many different music labels to agree upon many things, and that takes time, when that was done Apple had to stretch the service out to many different countries, one by one, as slow as mollasses. I seriously hate waiting, and living in a country that stuff like that takes time to be released into my country. Owell, I honestly won’t be purchasing a new TV until my current one dies. I am old school, and a cheap mofo in alot of ways.
