Jefferies analyst Peter Misek thinks Apple is about to unveil its smart TV at WWDC.

In a note to clients Misek, who back in April suggested that Apple’s rumoured television should be called iPanel not iTV, stated that Apple may surprise WWDC attendees by unveiling a smart television that will launch in the second half of 2012

Misek even claimed that companies including AT&T, Verizon, Rogers, Deutsche Telekom and France Telecom are already testing Apple’s HDTV in their labs, according to BGR’s report.

Misek believes that Hon Hai has begun production of the Apple television.

Back in April, Misek predicted a Q4 introduction of iPanel. He claims that his Asia supply chain sources expect “commercial production in May/June with 2M to 5M builds likely.” He also noted the recent investment in Sharp by Hon Hai (parent company to Apple manufacturing partner Foxconn).
