Currently, if you were to surf Best Buys online store for smart televisions in the screen range between forty two inches and fifty five inches, you may notice the average price range for such a television is anywhere between eight hundred dollars and seventeen hundred dollars. With rumor to believe an Apple smart television is on its way, the retail price is suggested to be anywhere between fifteen hundred and two thousand dollars which means you will be paying a much larger amount solely for the big Apple logo slapped on the Television set.
Now, the reason why Apple has not yet tried to make way into the Television business just yet is because, well, it is simply not the companies forte nor something they desperately need to focus on. However, with this being said the rumored Apple Television is still just that, a rumor and until we hear more from Apple directly we must cross our fingers and hope Apple will come out with something genius to set them selves apart in the Television market.
Jame McQuivey gave his own opinion on his Forrester Research Blog stating the following:
“Here’s me putting on the record what I’ve been telling clients behind closed doors for more than a year: Apple should sell the world’s first non-TV TV. Instead of selling a replacement for the TV you just bought, Apple should convince millions of Apple fans that they need a new screen in their lives. Call it the iHub, a 32-inch screen with touch, gesture, voice, and iPad control that can be hung on the wall wherever the family congregates for planning, talking, or eating — in more and more US homes, that room is the dining room or eat-in kitchen. By pushing developers to create apps that serve as the hub of family life — complete with shared calendars, photo and video viewers, and FaceTime for chatting with grandma — this non-TV TV could take off, ultimately positioning Apple to replace your 60-inch set once it’s ready to retire.”
