Sony Introduces TAV-L1 Slider HDTV
So, Sony has introduced a funky new slider HDTV called the TAV-L1. This magical box starts out like this:
And then morphs into:
According to T3.co.uk:
The upcoming TAV-L1 television is no ordinary goggle box. See, Sony’s latest HD set has one hell of a swish party trick up its sleeve that’s guaranteed to leave your house guests gawping with tech envy. In audio mode the unit looks like a stylish single-stand speaker, but tap the touch-sensitive front panel and the speaker grill seductively slides down to the floor to reveal a plush 32-inch HD-ready Bravia LCD display! We’ve seen it in action and frankly it’s agonisingly cool.
Plus, the speaker grille is interchangeable so you can customise it to suit your surroundings. Adding an extra sprinkle of chic to the proceedings is the smooth slot-loading CD/DVD player situated in the top of the telly. As for sounds, it’s discreetly equipped with 2.1 stereo, outputting 50w per channel, and is smuggling a hefty 100w subwoofer onboard.
The TAV-L1 will debut in the UK around May and should retail for around $6000UD.
Personally, I'm not that thrilled with the design. For the same price, you can get a larger screen HDTV and have a nice custom cabinet made if you really need to hide the screen.
