    This was spotted this morning and rumours are starting that Apple may be working on a TV set. However there images are not exactly clear so it could be fake!

    According to Weibo the images show an OLED TV that's around 60" but what do you think?

    In the iPhone forum these photos were posted days ago (buried in a thread). Someone analyzed the photos came to the conclusion there was something wrong with the apple logo.

    I hope they are working on one even if my wife will never let me spend as much as Apple will charge.

    I'm sure this is real, but probably won't lead to a product anytime soon. I mean what would Apple bring to a TV set? Top-end OLED televisions are already at the top end of most people's budgets (£2k or over for a 55" set) - add on an Apple mark-up and you're into stupid money. Also, thanks to the thinness of the OLED panels, LG, Sony and Panasonic OLED sets are already fairly minimalistic so what could Apple design bring? The top end LG even mounts to your wall with magnets (expect this to filter down to a cheaper price next year).
    Sure, Apple could provide a good UI and interface, but how would this be different from adding an Apple TV to your existing set?

    there have been rumors about Apple making a full tv set for the past 5 or so years. frankly i doubt it. especially after they cut their displays. other folks have it all figured out so why would they reinvent the wheel when they can just do the box and folks are buying it.

    I hope so.

    Android TV is utterly awful - it ruins the sony bravia tv experience , Apple can only improve things

    Kind of disappointing that they'll (be rumored to) happily make a TV set, when they ditched the Cinema Displays a while ago. And having something like this on your desk probably doesn't make for the best computer display.
