The last year has seen offerings from many of the major electronics manufacturers, ranging from a relatively puny 47 incher to the current giant of the bunch, which tops 100 inches. Here is a collection of just some of the whoppers that have been announced this year.
The world's biggest producer of plasma TVs is planning to sell the world's largest plasma TV by early 2007, according to Reuters and other sources.
Matsushita Electric Industrial announced Monday that it hopes to sell a 103-inch plasma TV, beating out Samsung's announced 102-inch plasma screen by exactly an inch. The flat panel, which was shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show inJanuary, is described as "bigger than a double-sized mattress and almost as heavy as an upright piano." The high-definition television measuresabout 7.8 feet by 4.5 feet and weighs a mammoth 474 pounds.
