Info Nugget: Philips Cinema 21:9 has a release date

February 20, 2009 by  

2-20-09-cinema_21-9_06_lifA recent UK trade show revealed that the large HDTV wonder would be released “sometime this Spring”, but now more solid details about price and shipping date have been revealed. There’s some good and bad news associated with this, however…the price will be a tad more than originally suggested.

The 56-inch 21:9 (that’s theater width screen) widescreen HDTV panel will cost you a wallet-busting $5,000 USD. So this one is squarely in the “elite” category of entertainment items.

We previously posted about this TV and its awesome specs, so no doubt it will appeal to the high-end market right out of the gate and get its fair share of takers. We can’t wait to see it when it comes out and we’ll bring you the early reviews, of course.
