Rumors have been floating around for months now that Apple would be launching a new HDTV that has been dubbed the AppleTV or iTV. Apple already had the AppleTV set-top box that has been around for a while and has been selling decently in the latest form.

A source has now said that the Apple supply chain is ramping up to start preparing the materials for the iTV in Q1. The source claims production will kick off in Q2 or Q3. Apple is said to be prepping 32-inch and 37-inch sizes to start.

The next generation of the AppleTV set-top boxes are also said to still be coming. A solution for users with existing TVs and one of people that want a TV with the tech inside already makes sense. I would bet that the set-top box and the iTV would share many of the same features.

However, other sources also revealed that Apple may continue to launch its next-generation STB-like Apple TVs in 2012 as it has lowered the price of its current version of Apple TV listed on Amazon by 9% recently.
