According to sources close to the company, Apple may begin manufacturing its long-awaited Apple TV device as early as Monday.
A report on AppleInsider cites that the company, which faced setbacks that shifted an anticipated January launch to mid-March, may be ready to begin manufacturing the units.
The setbacks appear to have been software-related, albeit Apple has never offered an official explanation for the delays. Speculated reasons for these setbacks have included time necessary for full approval of the device from the Federal Communications Commission, although other sources have cited that the NVIDIA graphics card within the Apple TV could have presented technical concerns which needed to be resolved.
Sources close to the company state that Apple began supplying its Taiwanese manufacturing partner Foxconn with materials.
The Apple TV will feature an NVIDIA G72M chipset with 64 megabytes of DDR2 video RAM as well as a 1.0 GHz Pentium M-based Intel chip with two megabytes of L2 cache, 256 megabytes of non-upgradable 400 MHz DDR2 RAM, a 40 gigabyte 2.5″ PATA hard drive and an 802.11n wireless card.
