LG launches 55- and 65-inch Ultra-High-Def TVs Video Transcript
Hi. I'm David Katzmaier from CNET. I'm at CES 2013. This is LG's little mini booth right after their press conference and right next to me is an exciting TV that we didn't hear about before the press conference. This is a 65-inch ultra high-definition 4K television. Now, LG is one of the only company shipping the 4K TV right now that's 84 inches but this is the first we've heard of a smaller screen size. This is the 65-inch. There's also gonna be a 55-inch model of this television. So, they're gonna be shipping in the summer timeframe a little bit later in the year. I've been told that this TV is still a little bit preliminary so I don't have a model number yet, but this set will have the same specs as the 84-inch including that 4K ultra high-definition resolution, which is 4 times the pixel count of a standard 1080p television. Of course, the real problem right now is that there's no 4K content. LG did briefly mention that they might do something about that. We don't have any real details right now. You're gonna be watching mainly 1080p on this TV and that means you won't see much but difference. In fact, even if they do the 4K on this TV at this roughly small screen size, not of a hard time telling difference. So, we're really waiting to see what this thing looks like when they get in the lab and be able to compare it to today's 1080p TVs at the screen size. Other specs include an edge LED backlight with local dimming. The set also has LG's passive 3D. So, pretty much all the bells and whistles you'd expect including smart TV from a 2013 LG. That's a quick look at LG's smaller 4K UHD TV. This is a 65-inch here. I'm David Katzmaier from CES 2013.
Toshiba's first 7-inch Android tablet keeps many of the best features found in their 10-inch model, including an impressive high definition screen.
At the company's event in San Francisco this morning, Dell showed several new models of laptops, desktops, and workstations, as well as a prototype of a 10-inch Windows 7-based tablet due later this year.
With nearly double the battery life of last year's model, Toshiba's new R800 series of Portege laptops are hard to beat, even in the highly competitive 13-inch laptop category.
The Toshiba Satellite M645-S4118X has a killer combination of Blu-ray, high-end graphics, and a fast processor at a price slightly north of $1,000, but poor battery life is the Achilles' heel on what would otherwise be an ideal 14-inch laptop.
Veronica wants to give away a Zune, details in the show! Pat reviews the Gateway One all-in-one PC. Which offers better storage growth, the NAS or Drobo? Does 1080p matter on a 32-inch or smaller HDTV? Why the '70s really ended. Hint: It's not because of high oil prices. And it's a festival of DIY as we look back at this year's Maker Faire.
Apple's Phil Schiller shows off the company's new ultra thin and light MacBook Pro at WWDC 2012 in San Francisco. The new laptop is 0.71 inches thick, with a 220-pixels-per-inch resolution and screen display of 2,880 by 1,800. It starts shipping June 11 for $2,199.
The 24-inch Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP display delivers across the board in performance, design, and features.
Apple's Phil Schiller shows off the company's new iMac. The new computer is 80 percent thinner than the previous generation and 8 pounds lighter. The computer starts at $1,299 for a 21.5-inch model and starts shipping in November. The 27-inch model starts at $1,799 and ships in December.
If you don't like broad patents on potentially world-changing scientific developments like scientific genomes, well, then, build your own! Also, does the $97 iPhone 3GS mean the 4G model will be on sale at launch? And we find out why five inches just isn't enough. Sorry.
The Pocket is Pantech's first-ever 4G Android phone for AT&T. It has an unusually wide 4-inch SVGA display, and it ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a 5-megapixel camera.
