Analyst Claims 60-Inch 'iTV' Could Launch in Late 2013 With 'iRing' Motion Control and iPad-Like Auxiliary Screens
Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White is out with a new research note today outlining a remarkable set of features for Apple's rumored television set product, claiming that the TV could launch later this year. White believes that the television will be available as a 60-inch model, with 50-55 inch models also potentially being available.
In a new addition to the Apple television rumor roundup, White's report claims that Apple will revolutionize the television market with an "iRing" device to facilitate motion control of the device.
Beyond the basic television set, White claims that Apple will be releasing auxiliary screens similar to iPads, with the devices allowing users to watch their television content on wireless devices within range of the larger television.
White believes that the entire iTV package would be priced at $1500-$2500 depending on how many auxiliary mini iTVs are ordered, with some service providers perhaps subsidizing the cost to draw in customers.
Several of White's new claims appear to a fleshing out of his previous reports that have cited motion control and "iPad-like" touchscreen remotes. Still, while Apple has been said to be trying to revolutionize the television industry, White's reported feature set seems difficult to believe and has so far been uncorroborated.
After a lull in Apple television rumors while many observers turned their attention toward the company's iWatch efforts, reports on the iTV are beginning to ramp up again with White's report coming on the heels of rumors of a 4K "Ultra HD" set perhaps launching late this year or early next year.

I wonder how he figures that some service providers will subsidize a TV. Apple usually provides great service themselves and creates strong incentives not to subsidize their products. That's why the prices of Apple computers are so similar in different stores.

interesting that it will come with the TV
You can do similar things with a samsung TV and a galaxy tablet. I know samsung had some success when they ran a promotion where you got a free Galaxy tablet with certain tvs.

I thought Apple couldn't call it "iTV", maybe just in the UK? ITV is one of Britain's main terrestrial television channels and has been for decades. I seem to remember some legal thing happened about this but not sure...

How do I become an analyst?
Seems like such an easy job, to just tell people what you think might happen at some point in the future!
