Analyst Thinks Apple Will Turn the iMac Into a Television

Wedge Partners analyst Brian Blair has issued a research note in which he asserts that Apple's 2012 iMac will likely include some TV functionality, reports Forbes.

Blair envisions the company pushing the largest screen sizes of the iMac toward the TV market by integrating Apple TV and iCloud features into a slimmer all-in-one PC with TV capabilities.

"We think this makes sense because while we typically think about the newest TV's hanging on the wall in large form factors, Apple could effectively start with what they already have on the manufacturing line and slowly push their offering from 27 inches and scale up from there to 32 inches and then move on to the 42, 50 and 55 inch market," he writes. "In short, we believe the initial Apple TV is their iMac computer that can function as a TV, over the iCloud platform."

While this scenario could happen, it seems unlikely. Especially since Apple has actually been reducing the iMac's capability to function as a television by removing Front Row from OS X Lion.
