Another 36 percent were “somewhat interested”.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/appletv2012-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/appletv2012-1.jpg" alt="The new Apple TV with 1080p" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Apple currently sells a small Apple TV box but is rumored to be working on a full-fledged TV</i></p><br />In comparison, 23 percent said they were interested in buying an iPhone in a similar survey from 2007 and 21 said they were interested in buying the iPad in 2010.
