“What Apple might be putting into the prototype is unknown; Huberty speculates, though, that a completed TV might merge ‘TV/Video content, gaming, DVR, as well as other features like apps and FaceTime into one product,'” Electronista reports.
“Huberty argues that a smart TV is “potentially the next new product category,” and could give Apple an extra $4 billion per year for every 1 percent of the TV market the company takes by 2013,” Electronista reports. “The concept has regularly been proposed by analysts, particularly Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster.”
