    SEOUL : Samsung SDI, South Korea's largest display screen maker, said Monday it has developed the world's slimmest cathode-ray tube (CRT) display for digital televisions.

    The new CRT display, dubbed 'Vixlim' for 32-inch (81-centimeter) digital TVs, is only 35 centimeters thick, nearly halving the 50 to 60 centimeters seen on traditional CRTs.

    Yes, 35 cm is as slim as 8cm. Still, there's life in the old dog yet.

    Will the new 'panels' be able to do full res HD though - I doubt it. Current CRT HDTVs have roughly 1400 x 1080 res (interlaced), and no 720p. Not ideal for the all high-def future.
