PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It might be a cliche, but sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words. Over the years, I've often talked about how the technology world is iterative, about how products are virtually always built upon that which came before, about how almost always, multiple people independently arrive at the same products since they work within the same constraints of the current state of technology. This elementary aspect of the technology world, which some would rather forget, has been illustrated very, very well in one of Samsung's legal filings against Apple.

That is why everyone is surprised Apple want to make TVs, the current Apple TV device and devices like Nexus Q are much more likely to be sold. As they are an addon which makes it an easier sell.

The Nexus Q is very unlikely to be sold. ;-)

Apple is yet to announce their television. So far it's just a rumor, but it's one of the strongest yet.

My guess, if it comes, it will be US only at first. No doubt it will feature downloadable content and subscriptions. Apple needs to get all the big parties on their side in the US, see how it goes and then try to pull it off in more countries.
