A new report out of Taiwan suggests the long-rumored Apple TV set won’t be seen until at least 2014. Though the report is of questionable veracity, it includes some interesting claims from an anonymous source at Apple manufacturing partner Hon Hai/Foxconn. According to this source, initial testing of the TV design has begun, with Apple considering 46- to 55-inch flat panel screens. As these sizes are commonly available, Hon Hai would not need to rely exclusively upon Sharp—which reportedly is focusing production on 60-inch panels—as an exclusive provider for the screens. The report suggests that some products relating to the Apple TV set could appear at CES in January, though there is little to no chance that this will happen at the 2013 show.
