Apple said to be working on TV

Building a Smart-TV prototype
A number of sources tell us that Apple is looking to move beyond Apple TV, and they are apparently working on what is being called a “Smart TV” prototype device that will combine a number of features to create a totally new and unique device.

The new Apple Smart TV device is likely to include some combination of TV content from a number of sources, including input from OTA or Cable Card and, of course, DVR functionality. It will likely include a number of apps for use on the TV, including FaceTime and web browser integration similar perhaps to what we have seen on the Google TV offering. Of course, the device will likely support gaming of some type, as well. It will offer a combination remote and keyboard in one.

It is hard to know all that it will offer, as it is still being defined, and right now they are still in the development stage. We do know that it is likely ARM-based, using the latest Apple dual core design running the latest version of iOS. It is likely that it will offer some sort of iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch docking support. It will offer several streaming options and some other programming.

Look for it to arrive with an official announcement around the holidays, according to the whispers we are hearing. Then again, it might amount to nothing and Apple may never bring the product to market.
