Apple is set to announce the next generation iPad later today at its media event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Also on the agenda is a revamped Apple TV which 9to5 Mac has garnered some rather interesting information.

According to their sources, the new Apple TV will stick to its current low price point of $99 even though it is getting a very nice spec bump. The new Apple TV should have the exact same form factor as the current version but include the ability to play back 1080p high definition content, Bluetooth 4.0 should also be included and of course a processor bump to help run all of the new internals.

The Apple TV J33 model, MD199LL/A – J33 BEST -USA, which we’ve covered before will come in at the same $99 price point (and similar prices globally).

Also the mystery Apple TV accessory which is listed as B82 has also been given a price point of $39. We have no idea what this accessory may be but we assume that it could be some type of advanced remote control to take advantage of the new Bluetooth 4.0 capability.
