Apple TV Slated to Debut in December?
Apple could unveil its highly anticipated take on the television in December and ship it next year, according to a research note today from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster.
Munster said he expects the Apple TV product line to cost between $1,500 and $2,000 and range in size from 42 to 55 inches. That’s a considerable premium over typical televisions of that size, which have a range closer to $700 to $1,400.
The iPhone 5, which Munster said he believes will make its debut in October, will be the biggest consumer product launch this year and drive the biggest device upgrade cycle, he said.
Gene Munster has been fixated on this prediction for years. Years. When and if Apple chooses to release a TV, he will likely claim credit for his accurate analysis, even though he has been revising the details of that analysis since 2009. How many times can one revise a prediction and still claim credit?
