Industry insiders say Apple could be unveiling a new product soon.

Tech analyst Gene Munster says he expects Apple will begin making an all-in-one television set by the year 2012.

Apple has been selling set-top boxes used to purchase movies and music from iTunes as well was to stream movies from Netflix, but the boxes have not been a huge hit.

Munster says patents recently filed by Apple point to television technology.
