Apple has postponed until March the launch of the device that promises to connect the PC to the television and pave the way for viewing on the small screen of films and other content acquired via the Internet, on the computer.

The launch of Apple TV was announced in January by Steve Jobs, during his speech at MacWorld. At that time, the company’s president was scheduled to launch the device in February.

Information confirmed by a company spokesman to several international media now points to a postponement in the official launch date of the new equipment less than a month. The new estimate points to the beginning of sales for mid-March.

Apple TV will have 40 gigabytes of memory which translates into a capacity to store up to 50 hours of video. The equipment, with Intel processor, allows the reading of video, as well as music and photographic contents and allows the simultaneous and wireless connection of five computers. It will cost around $ 300.
