Amazon has finally released their home TV set-top device, the Fire TV. With the same price and a similar form factor to the Apple TV, Amazon has joined Roku in their fight for the living room. But how does their offering stack up, and should Apple be worried?
After the release of iPad Air people began re-imagining iPhones to match the “Air” aesthetics. But what about the possibility of an Apple TV Air? Well, nobody was expecting that. Curved is behind this one too, after the wirelessly rechargeable touch-enabled Apple TV remote concept and the remote slash gamepad concepts, showed off in the last couple of weeks.
People’s love for AirPlay continues unabated as recent report by a market research outfit shows that Apple TV worldwide sales are over half of all dedicated streaming boxes. A report by Frost & Sullivan dubbed the Consumer Video Devices Market report indicates that Apple TV devices global sales account for 56.1 percent, with Roku coming in second at 21.5 percent and TiVo third with a mere 6.5 percent.
