Apple Inc.’s iTV will go on sale later this year with a price range of $1,500 US to $2,500 US, The Associated Press reported Wednesday. In a research note obtained by AP, New York-based Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian J. White said the iTV will measure 60 inches diagonally, though it could also come in 50- and 55-inch versions. White did not respond to request for the report. According to AP, he wrote that Apple will also release the “iRing,” a ring for iTV viewers that serves as a remote and allows user control by pointing. White’s research note, AP said, is based on visits with unnamed Chinese and Taiwanese companies that supply Apple components. AP said the iTV would come with 9.7-inch “mini iTVs” that could receive content from the main television device wirelessly throughout the home. Analysts said last May they expected Apple’s iTV to cost about $3,000 US and to be launched in late 2012 or early 2013. The Globe and Mail reported last February that Rogers Communications Inc. and BCE Inc. were in talks with Apple and testing the product in their labs.
