32 and 37-Inch Panasonic VIERA TVs Hitting Japan In July With Skype, Blu-ray and HDDs

Labels: , , , ,

Panasonic has just announced two more of their TVs that will be hitting Japan in a couple of months. These are both a part of their VIERA Series and it comes in 32 and 37-inch sizes. Both of them sport a 20,000:1 contrast ratio, speakers, two HDMI ports, an SD/SDXC card slot, DLNA support, VIERA link, an integrated Blu-ray recorder, YouTube support, and LAN. These TVs also feature an HDD inside with Skype pre-installed, but you'll need to purchase Panasonic's TV camera because it doesn't come with it, which sucks. The main difference between these two is that the smaller 32-inch model has a 1,366 x 768 resolution while the larger 37-inch model has a Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution.

Both of these TVs will be available in Japan starting on July 9th; they'll be going for $2,100 and $2,700, respectively.

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Apparently, RIM is looking to make a "Bold" move (see what I did there?). The latest rumour states that the BlackBerry Bold 9800 aka the Mr. T will be hitting AT&T in the USA this June. AT&T has reportedly ordered 1,000,000 of this handsets which seems like a lot. This could be a bad move by RIM seeing how the next iPhone is expected to launch in June as well. If this is true that means that RIM's OS 6.0 could be ready earlier than I expected, so let's bring on that new WebKit browser of theirs.
