10 of the best upcoming gadgets for 2012
Best gadgets of 2012 – Apple TV
Not content with dominating the smartphone and tablet markets, Apple has its sights set on our living rooms. The future of TV, according to the rumours swirling around Cupertino, is AirPlay, mobile device synching and gesture controls.
Clearly the Apple TV will be more than just your average smart TV, with purported specs including the powerful A6 processor destined to arrive on the iPad 3, a giant Retina Display courtesy of Sharp and voice controls handled by the iPhone 4S Virtual Assistant, Siri.
Not only does iTV – as it has been dubbed – look set to revolutionise the television industry in the same way it has with the smartphone market, but Apple could be trying to engineer a shift away from traditional broadcast and satellite TV channels, if the rumours about Cupertino trying to buy up Premier League football rights are anything to go by.
The rumour mill points to a September release. Exciting.
