The Apple television looks like a much bigger LED-backlit Cinema Display, according to a CultofMac source.
According to our source, who has asked to remain strictly anonymous, the Apple HDTV looks like Apple's current lineup of LED-backlit Cinema Displays but is "much bigger." It has a built-in iSight camera for making free FaceTime video conference calls. And it has Siri, the iPhone 4S's voice-activated virtual assistant.
The supposedly 'well-placed' source claims to have seen a working prototype of the device. "It resembled an Apple monitor, only much larger," the source said.
The built in FaceTime camera is said to allow for calls and has sophisticated facial recognition capabilities that allows it to zoom into the user's face and follow them as they walk around the room.
Calls can be initiated by Siri, the virtual assistant found on the iPhone 4S. "[Apple] used Siri to make a FaceTime call," the source said.
Recently, J.P. Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz poured cold water on Apple television rumors saying a "full-fledged" TV is likely to arrive in 2014 at the earliest.
