WSJ: Apple a step closer to launching HDTV According to the WSJ, Apple is currently working with component suppliers in Asia to test multiple prototype designs of an upcoming HDTV.
Executives at the suppliers confirmed that Apple is testing different designs, implying a release could be imminent for 2013.

Hon Hai Precision Industry is working with Sharp on the designs, with one exec noting: "It isn't a formal project yet. It is still in the early stage of testing."

That being said, Apple has always tested and developed products internally before moving to suppliers so that at least means they have moved one step forward on their idea.

Apple has been in talks with content providers to create a set-top box that would carry live television and other streaming programming, with CEO Tim Cook recently stating that "turning on a TV today is like going backward in time by 20 to 30 years. It's an area of intense interest. I can't say more than that."

I wonder if Apple fans will buy a new one every six months with Apples' newest features?
