the new sammy is already shown on dealtime page 2, but they've got the description wrong......i think.......this one is a smaller version of the new Samsung HLR5687W.......both of these are the next generation of hi def/hi res tvs... both of these arent for sale yet, but will be soon; because the photo of the 50'' wasn't there last week so something's going on behind the scenes.... i quote ``....The 56" HLR5688W pedestal DLP is the very first 1080P DLP TV to hit the market. The Cinema Smoothä Optical Engine provides super-high (1920 x 1080) pixel density and progressive scanning for matchless video-image quality. The 5000:1 contrast ratio keeps colors lifelike and vibrant, while Samsung's enhanced Digital Natural Image Engine (DNIe) takes the signal from any kind of input and turns it into a stunning picture. The set is Digital Cable Ready (DCR) with a built-in CableCARD eliminating the need for a set-top box for digital cable program viewing. The unique pedestal display showcases Samsung's design ingenuity and ensures that the set "Fits Where Others Won't." The DLP TV utilizes Samsung's AnyNet System Solution providing simple one-touch control for home theater equipment. Two High-Definition Multimedia Interfaces (HDMI) ensure optimal signal transmission from DVD players and other digital devices. Cinema Film Mode, 3:2 pull down and a robust 30-watts of audio power complete the home theater experience. The 50" model, HLR5087W, incorporates the same features with a Cinema Smooth 720P engine and a single HDMI. Both models will be available in February 2005. `` so this new 50'' model is a direct successor to the SP50..i think, but it's all a bit confusing at the moment but the 56'' version has all the raz-mataz and glitter, there's not much being said about the 50'' on dealtime and other places too. ....i wonder why? i dont think the 50'' has 1080p, otherwise they'd mention it has on Dealtime; although they state it has above, i.e ``incorporates the same features``..i need to do more research. can anyone here confirm this?
