Business Insider has a recap of Apple analyst Gene Munster’s appearance on Bloomberg Radio with Tom Keene and Ken Pruitt yesterday, with thoughts and details on the impending Apple iTV and how it could affect the market. The most headline-worthy pronouncement? “It will be the biggest thing in consumer electronics since the smartphone.”

Bold words, no doubt, and our own John Sciacca disagrees, but the article does have a few tantalizing new possible specifics:

  • Munster’s betting the TV will be announced this year and will then freeze the TV market for 5 months while everyone waits for it to actually come out
  • The really innovative parts of it will be “the design of the TV” and “the way consumers consume content.” “Based on that, it’s going to be exciting for consumers.”
  • It “will look different” than a normal TV—”Imagine just a sheet of glass”—”no edges or bevels.”
