'iTV' Availability: Late January/Early February?
While it is believed that Apple CEO Steve Jobs will unveil more information regarding the company's "iTV" at MacWorld San Francisco, AppleInsider believes that availability of the product may be pushed back to late January or early February.
While Apple has only formally announced that the so-called "iTV" would be released in the "first quarter of 2007", Apple has reportedly been pushing to get the device ready for a release at MacWorld. However, according to AppleInsider's report, a series of quality-assurance related concerns regarding the iTV's software have delayed availability until the bugs can be worked out.
Of interest is that the device's software is reportedly a scaled-down version of Mac OS X. Rumors of Apple developing a "light" version of Mac OS X have been repeatedly reported on rumor site LoopRumors. A previous report indicated that Apple's phone was also using a light version of Mac OS X.
