In the wake of the Apple’s iPad, Sharp announced today four LED backlit panels. These four models are the LC-52SE1 (52-inch), the LC-46SE1 (46-inch), the LC-40SE1 (40 inch), and the LC-32SC1 (32-inch).
They all have LED backlights, and are full HD, except for the LC-32SC1 which has 1,366 x 768 resolution. They have a contrast ratio of 2 million to 1, web connectivity, three HDMI ports, and 2 x 10W speakers. They also have a “move sensor” that will allow the TV to turn itself off when the user leaves the room, and on again when they enter.
These new models will go on sale in Japan on February 25. The LC-52SE1 will be for $3,900, the LC-46SE1 will be for $3,100, the LC-40SE1 will be for $2,000, and the LC-32SC1 will be $1,200.
