Apple suppliers soon to prep materials for iTV launch in 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2012, say sources

“The supply chain of Apple will start preparing materials for iTV sets in the first quarter of 2012 in order to meet Apple’s schedule to launch the new display products in the second or the third quarter of 2012, according to industry sources,” Aaron Lee and Steve Shen report for DigiTimes.

“Instead of a form of set-top box (STB) like the Apple TV launched in 2006, Apple’s new products will be full TV sets [and ‘the new iTV sets will focus on 32- and 37-inch sizes initially’], the sources added,” Lee and Chen report. “Other sources also revealed that Apple may continue to launch its next-generation STB-like Apple TVs in 2012.”

  1. At least the Home Button story had pictures of actual home buttons. This is a story that suppliers are going to start getting materials ready Q2 or Q3 of next year? I just heard a rumor that, sometime in late Q1 to early Q3, there will be several rumors of a really important announcement of a very incredible rumor in late Q3, that will expose the mother of all rumors to be released in Q4.

    Sounds like lots of fun ahead…
