appletv.pngAmazon France and Amazon Germany are now displaying an avaliability date of October 23 for the Apple TV, indicating that a new version of the device may be available soon after after Apple's media event next week, reports German website iFun [Google Translation].

While the model number listed for future availability on both stores is that of the European 3rd-generation Apple TV, a new model of Apple's set-top box is well overdue for an update, having gone 590 days without a major release. A tweet from the well-connected MG Siegler last month hinted at an incoming updated version of the hardware, with Apple also releasing a major update for the Apple TV in September that brought iTunes Radio and AirPlay from iCloud functionality.

Apple will hold a media event next Tuesday, October 22 and is expected to unveil both the fifth-generation iPad and the second-generation iPad mini, along with other Apple products such as OS X Mavericks and the Mac Pro. However, potential announcements of other new products, such as an updated Apple TV and new MacBook Pros, is also likely at the event.

I would love to see an Apple TV with A7X with quad core graphics, 2GB RAM, 16-32gb HDD, HDMI pass thru, App store, and bluetooth controller support.

I'd love to see the software updated to allow more "organized" views of TV shows that have multiple seasons and Movies that belong in a series (Harry Potter, just an example). It seems crazy that I see 8 entries for the TV series House, one each for each season - it should just show "House" and once you drill into that folder, then each season becomes visible.

Would make for much less interface clutter, IMHO.
