Analyst Gene Munster, who is a supporter of the opinion about the release of the TV from Apple, claims that initially all expectations of the company's new creation were exaggerated. He claims that Apple will present a new product no earlier than December 2012, and new TVs will appear on store shelves no earlier than 2013.
As for the sixth generation iPhone, or iPhone 5, or The New iPhone, as the press has already dubbed it, the analyst agrees with the opinion that the new model will be released in October. We have previously reported this.
Roger Chen, CNC Analyst, noted:
In principle, there is nothing surprising in such a cost, Apple has always been distinguished by a slightly inflated price of its products, this has always been offset by quality. Selling TVs is a fierce business: Samsung and Sony have set minimum prices for their TVs to stop their fall.
The analyst also confirmed that the iPhone 5 will be the best-selling device of the current year, with an 80% chance of selling the iPhone 5 to 49 million units.
On other devices, the analyst noted:
Eric Jackson, founder and managing member of Ironfire Capital, recently suggested that the launch of iTV would be a "seismic shift" in the world of television.
Gene Munster noted that by 2015 Apple will ship 176 million iPads from 301 million of all tablets in the world.
