Getting into the TV business today is getting into a cutthroat low-margin dogfight.
It chewed up Intel. It trampled HP. Most display vendors are losing their shirts.
I've trimmed your post, but what I'm about to say applies to all of it.

Exactly the same things were said about Apple entering the mobile phone market.

Managing entry into a mature market and dominating it for a while was amazing once. It will be astonishing if Apple do it again in a different mature market.

But they might.
