Apple 42-inch HDTV at Best Buy

At times, Best Buy sends surveys to customers asking for feedback on potential new products and services; in the latest survey electrical retail giant is asking about a potential clients’ interest in 42-inch Apple HDTV! „Be one of the first to get the all new 42“ Apple HDTV at Best Buy for $1499. Apple finally reinvents what a TV can do,“ the survey reads.

Best Buy survey suggests that the Apple HDTV will feature 42-inch 1080p LED flash panel display, built in iSight camera and microphone for Skype, will run iOS, will have access to the App Store (!), Netflix, YouTube and Flickr, support for iCloud, will be controllable from an iPhone or iPad and will cost $1499.

The big question is: does Best Buy really have some reliable information on the upcoming Apple product or they know just what we know and are just identifying clients’ interest in long-rumored Apple TV set?

UPDATE: The survey was ‘hypothetical’.

    iCloud for movies and tv….

    Pretty clearly a fake.

    I work in research and it would be highly unusual for them to run this type of question if they didn’t know about the product.
    And if the survey was confirmed as received by BB customers, then it can’t be a fake.

    it gotta do more then that…. i pretty much have all that now with my bravia and my apple tv 2… Apple has to come up bigger then that

  • This is very cool.  The launch has sparked interest because it was remarkably specific.  The details included   the size of the device, the programs it run and its cost ( 42-inch 1080p television, would run Angry Birds and other iPhone-style apps, and would cost $1499).

  • My apple TV2 does all of that now and more. Why would I want Apple to control my TV now too if they cant improve what theyve already put on the market.
