Ice Screen? Why not an iMac TV?


Ice Screen, the upcoming 26-inch Android-based, tablet, smart display from China's TCL, "looks like the kind of TV a younger generation would appreciate," says "CNNMoney." Maybe I'm missing something, but ... a 26-inch tablet? If the young folk want a TV they can interact with, perhaps Apple should give them an iMac with built-in television features.

"The [Ice Screen] is a 26-inch large display," says Hao Yi, general manager of TCL Multimedia Emerging Market Business Center. "It is not just for TV, as the younger generation doesn't watch TV like the older generation."

The Ice Screen -- photo courtesy of "endgadget" (www.endgadget.com) -- has options for music downloads and Internet applications. It boasts a 1366 x 768 resolution. However, it still requires a connection to a cloud service, or else it's just a screen without a tuner. In that case, most folks might prefer what I'll call the iMac TV, which I've mentioned before (see http://macte.ch/6rrHN).

Of course, the Ice Screen will purportedly cost US$315, which is a lot cheaper than an iMac. But you can do a whole lot more with a full-fledged computer/television combo. And besides ... a 26-inch tablet screen.

If that's what the young folk want, Apple should start working on the iPad Maxi (and no feminine hygiene jokes, please).
