Apple TV Sets Already In Canada Claims Newspaper

Further rumours have emerged regarding the impending launch of the Apple iTV, this time coming from Canada's biggest national newspaper, The Globe and Mail.

The news outlet claims that Apple is looking to partner with Rogers Communications and BCE Inc for the debut of the Apple TV.

The Globe and Mail writes, "they're not closed to doing it with one [company] or doing it with two," said one source who is familiar with the talks. "They're looking for a partner. They're looking for someone with wireless and broadband capabilities."

What's more, the newspaper claims that the Apple TV is already in the labs of both companies and adds "an on-screen keyboard, meanwhile, can also be activated in a similar manner, allowing viewers to surf the web, conduct video chats and use social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook - all without any physical interface."

Apple is known for being extremely cautious when it comes to dealing with partners, especially when launching new products, so it is surprising that a national newspaper managed to publish details about the Apple TV and back it with a source.

He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
