Apple is preparing to launch an iOS-powered Apple-branded HDTV this year, says an anonymous previous exec with the company speaking to DT.

The company is previously in talks with a “major OEM,” adds the report, which they speculate for being Samsung, a long-time partner.

Apple will “blow Netflix and all those other guys away” using the HDTV, which will bundle Apple television and iTunes in a very slim, Internet-capable device.

While Samsung (and other OEMs) market TVs themselves, the source states it will not be an matter since “if you need to be competing with somebody, you want to be competing with yourself.”

A 2011 start is expected, however the exec does admit that Apple could wait around until earlier 2012 to be sure almost everything is perfect.
