Panasonic to Offer 103-inch Plasma TV Early Next Year


When you have to reinforce your walls to hold your big-ass TV, that's livin'. According to Reuters:

Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd., the maker of Panasonic brand electronics, said on Monday it hoped to start selling the world's largest plasma television by early next year.

Measuring 2.4 metres by 1.4 metres and weighing 215 kg, the 103-inch panel is bigger than a double-sized mattress and almost as heavy as an upright piano.

The world's largest consumer electronics maker has yet to set the price but Matsushita's 65-inch plasma TVs, its largest available now, sell for about $7,500 in Japan.

The plasma panel used in the Matsushita TV will be just one-inch larger measured diagonally than a 102-inch model developed by Samsung SDI Co. Ltd. (006400.KS: Quote, Profile, Research). The South Korean company has not launched the model commercially.

For you non-metric types, over 450 freakin pounds for a TV. Yowza! Since this baby will probably run close to $20,000, I'm not going to worry about reinforcing that wall just yet.
