Report: Foxconn has orders to begin producing Apple television The latest report out of China has implied that Foxconn's Shenzhen plant has now received orders to build trial run sets of the oft-rumored HDTV.
Of course the report comes from anonymous sources; however, there has been evidence for months that Apple is working on such a device.

The alleged device will be powered by a Siri-esque search system, and has the potential to be the first TV to allow a la carte channel selections for those who do not want to pay for a full cable or satellite subscription that includes hundreds of channels they may never watch.

Apple has never confirmed such a product, much like they do not confirm upcoming iOS devices until launch day.

Up on it's side... Hang a silhouette... I can see that working out pretty nicely.

I wonder if they've stopped comitting suicide at that ghastly sweatshop?

Still, it's a few /$ cheaper so who cares right?

I guess I better grease up the old Quad 50 so I'll have it ready when my order comes in.

How many channels are providers going to pull? You have companies like Viacom/Disney/ESPN that own multiple channels. They already force traditional cable providers to give you all or none...I wonder how Apple thinks they're going to be the ones to bust up these guys? Chances are...they'll be missing a lot of the big channels.
