Rumors: Apple HDTV Components Hit Apple’s Suppliers

Jordan Kahn, writing for 9 to 5 Mac, reports on a usually reliable financial analyst's note today:

“A new report from Misek (via BusinessInsider) claimed small quantities of TV components are starting to move through Apple’s supply chain. He also said production of up to 5 million units could kick off as early as May, and he still expects the product to launch by Q4 of this year”

Misek accurately predicted the new iPad's slightly lower resolution Retina display last year.

Still unknown is how Apple will work with content providers (cable companies? TV production companies?) to fill their new television product with programming people actually watch.
