The next version of Apple TV has been revealed by Engadget, stating a source very close to Apple has confirmed the next version will support Cloud storage, with the iPhone OS interface and best of all, it will retail for $99.
The device is said to be based on the 4th generation iPhone, right down to the internals, including the A4 processor. The device will have 16GB of storage and 1080p HD output. The new Apple TV will be quite small, being roughly the same size as the 4th generation iPhone, without a touch screen, and will have minimal ports - power and (HDMI?) video output.
Apple has been working on the next version of Apple TV long before Google TV was announced, and will move towards cloud storage, unlike the iPhone, which uses local flash storage. Additionally, the device will support external storage devices, utilizing a Time Capsule to keep your data locally. The devices main focus will be on streaming content and will retail for $99 US.
There wasnt any mention if the next Apple TV will feature an AppStore or apps for that matter, but it will have an iPhone OS 4.0 operating system.
However, Apple will not be delivering the juicy news at WWDC on June 7, but will focus on the features of the next iPhone and the iPhone OS 4.0.
