Who is waiting for Apple TV?

Apple TV delayed

The new $99 Apple TV, announced on Sept 01, had always listed on Apple Store with a shipping date in September. Apple yesterday started charging for those who pre-order the Apple TV. But some customers also received email from Apple informing that their expedite shipping charge is waived due to a possible delay. And on Apple Store, Apple TV is now listed with expected ship date in 2-3 weeks.

There is no words from Apple on what’s happening. It could be a product delay, another possibility is Apple TV is selling so well that Apple is running out of initial stock.

$99 Dollar Apple TV?

The next generation AppleTV will sports an A4 CPU, flash storage, full 1080p HD capable, work with cloud-base storage or Time Capsule storage, iPhone OS, and $99 price tag. This is clearly a strike back at Google TV if the rumor is true. And with that price, the new AppleTV will be selling like hotcakes for sure.

Cheaper, smaller, HD capable and with a focus on cloud content, Apple is putting AppleTV back into the game.

Apple TV 160GB Model Price Slashed, 40GB Model Dropped

Apple has quietly dropped its 40GB model Apple TV, and reduced the price of its 160GB model from $329 to $229. Previously the 40GB model was priced at $229. The 160GB model is now the only Apple TV available.

Apple TV hardware has remained unchanged since its introduction in March 2007. Many has expected Apple to upgrade Apple TV software to support the recently launched iTunes LP. With its lackluster sales, it is interesting to see how Apple plans to turn this product around.
