(Newser) Longstanding rumors that Apple will add television to its repertoire of gadgets are heating up, as an analyst is claiming the 60-inch "iTV" is coming late this year, reports the AP. Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets said component manufacturers in Taiwan and China had revealed that the televisions could be available in 50-, 55-, 60-inch versions and will cost between $1,500 and $2,500.

In addition, White claimed the iTV will be controlled by a couple of unconventional accessories—an "iRing" pointer device you wear on your finger and a 9.7-inch iPad-like tablet that can stream video wirelessly and be carried around the house. Apple, predictably, isn't commenting.
