Samsung started shipping a 57-inch LCD TV shown in Korea. This TV has a native 1080p (1920x1080) resolution. The price is set to 16000000Won ( about $15600). Given that Panasonic is going to enter the market with 65-inch Viera plasma at $9000, this is not really exciting. Even boring.
[Update] I4U News reports more details on Samsung LN57F51BD.
Samsung announced the 57 inch LCD HDTV beauty only in Korea so far. The LN57F51BD has two HDMI interfaces and has full 1080p resolution. Contrast ratio is 5000:1 and the response time is 8ms.
