We knew Apple’s new TV set-top box would be coming soon, but now we’ve got a date.
On stage at the WSJ Live event, CEO Tim Cook said that Apple will be taking orders for the box on Monday, in time for shipping by the end of the week.
The new TV packs a more powerful (and much-needed) A8 processor, along with a touchpad-enabled remote that lets you talk to Siri. On the software side, there’s a real App Store for third-party applications, in the hope that you’ll be using the TV for some casual gaming. $150 gets you the base 32GB model, with the 64GB upgrade costing $200.
