Since August, rumour mills have been abuzz about Apple preparing to launch a HDTV, and since then various analysts have stated that a Siri-enabled TV was in the works. Apart from this, Piper Jaffray analyst, Gene Munster gave a possible time frame as to when this Siri-enabled HDTV from Apple would be launched, which is by the end of 2012. Adding fuel to these rumours, a report by SmartHouse states that anonymous sources have informed them that a major company is apparently working on the production of HDTVs in three sizes ranging from 32-inches to 55-inches.

The same sources went on to say that these TVs would feature an A6 processor, which are possibly the same ones that maybe used on the next generation iPads. Previous reports of this television indicate that the upcoming TV from Apple would be Siri-enabled keeping with Steve Jobs's statement in the biography written by Walter Isaacson where he says that he’d like to create a television that is completely easy to use and could be easily synced with other devices along with iCloud.
According to a related report by the Business Insider, Gene Munster has estimated that the said television would be quite pricey and stated that if a television costs USD 800, an Apple television would be priced twice as much at USD 1,600. AS of now, we have to just wait and see how these rumours pan out come end of 2012.
