Apple works with Asian component suppliers to test new TV: Report
TAIPEI (AFP) - US technology giant Apple has been working with component suppliers in Asia to test new TV sets in a possible move to branch into the television market, a report said on Wednesday.
Apple has been testing several TV prototypes for large-screen high-definition TV for a few years, sources familiar with the situation were quoted by the Dow Jones Newswires as saying.
Among the suppliers, Taiwan's Hon Hai Precision has been working with Japan's Sharp Corp. on the design of the new TV, the report said, citing unnamed company officials.
Hon Hai, better known as Foxconn, is the world's largest maker of computer components and produces goods for tech giants including Apple, Sony and Nokia.
