New Apple TV tipped to launch alongside iPad 3?
Whoa there -- the iPad 3 is launching next week, we know that much, but a new Apple TV could be coming too.
Unfortunately it won't be the fabled TV set Apple is said to be working on, but rather its dinky set-top box. But still, should be quite a day.
9to5Mac quotes reliable sources as saying the new box will launch alongside the iPad 3. It quotes the Apple TV's codename as J33, and says it's rumoured to have a faster processor, possibly a variation on the dual-core A5 found in the iPhone 4S. This chip will mean the Apple TV will finally be able to stream 1080p HD video. Other rumours include a fancy new Bluetooth 4.0 control, and Siri integration, possibly as a testbed for a fully fledged rollout in the TV set.
