World's Thinnest Production LCD: Hitachi Wooo UT Series
Continuing the "thin is in" trend, Hitachi has announced the Wooo UT Series LCD TV's, that at 35 mm thin are the thinnest LCD's currently in production. One of the reasons Hitachi was ability to achieve such a remarkable level of thinness is externalizing the tuner. It accompanies the TV, but is located outside of the box. The external tuner features 3 HDMI inputs, an iVDR recorder, an Ethernet slot and an SD/MMC slot. The television itself has one HDMI input, two built-in 6 watt speakers, and a wide-viewing angle making for a pleasureful viewing experience. The series will come in three sizes of 32", 37" and 42". Costing $2011, $2886, and $3760 respectively, the 37" and 42" models feature full 1080p HD resolution and the 32" model features a pixel resolution of 1366 x 768. How thin will we go!? Maybe something like this...
Unfortunately, the model will only be released in Japan at the moment, but should hit the US next year. No word yet if the above prices will carry-over to the States, but we doubt it! Oh, and one more thing, the girl in the picture above is NOT included with the TV!
