Samsung on Wednesday revealed its flagship UNC9000 LED HDTV, just 0.3-inches thick, or about the width of a No. 2 pencil.
The company is pairing the television set with a multimedia-friendly, color touchscreen Wi-Fi RF remote with QWERTY keyboard that can actually display broadcast TV content live for you to watch. (Why would you use this? It's a bit like picture-in-picture, with the big picture on the TV and the little one on the remote itself.)
As for the TV, it's officially the thinnest production model yet announced. (LG has shown a TV as thin as a U.S. quarter, but it was a concept prototype). How does it manage such thinness? By cramming all the electronics inside the pedestal stand, which can also be converted to a wall-mount bracket.
The display panel itself uses edge-lit LED backlighting and local dimming, and is not just 3D compatible, but offers real-time 2D to 3D upconversion. It's got a 240GHz refresh rate and is, naturally, Internet-ready with widgets and apps.
Samsung didn't reveal screen sizes, pricing or exact availability beyond "this year."
