It is that time of year again where big tech companies start unveiling the gadgets and appliances they hope are going to make a real splash over the course of the year.
It seems as the years wane on the next big thing is actually something like is actually big. Whether you are talking about the internet televisions that have huge screens and can stream Netflix as though you are sitting in a movie theater, or behemoth televisions that deliver the picture in 3D, bigger appears to be better an awful lot.
Mitsubishi is most certainly buying into the bigger is better mantra as they roll out their 2011 line of televisions. Headlining their press release was the announcement that they will actually be offering a massive 92 inch 3D television. Mitsubishi, in fact is actually embracing the the style of getting as big as they can terming the rollout their “Go Big” initiative.
While a television that huge is sure to draw oohs and ahs, what the company really hopes will set them apart from other 3D television makers is what they have termed the LaserVue line. These televisions are the first of their kind, using laser light as their main source of bring pictures with a clarity that are being called the best consumer level pictures around. Even the LaserVue is coming in with some serious girth, with measurements of a 75 inch 3D screen.
The 92 inch 3D television is actually a part of what the company is calling Diamond 840 series, and as an added bonus, both the Diamond 840 series and the LaserVue televisions will appeal to techies even more thanks to the fact that there will be free downloadable apps that enable users to control the televisions using either their iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone. While some may find that last bit a little silly, I will say many is the time I’ve used the remote app on my iPad to run my Apple TV because I momentarily misplaced the tiny remote that is native to the device.
Of course, televisions of this quality and size are not going to be cheap. The lowest price consumers can expect from Mitsubishi’s new line is $1,500 with some models costing upwards of $4,000.
