    I have tried to summarise the new plasma's and LCD's that were launched at the IFA 2003 in Berlin. The information is taken from www.areadvd.de and has been translated via babel fish, so I apologise if any of the wording is grammatically wrong.
    Also pictures can be found at the areadvd website.

    Looking at the specs of Samsung plasma, they are amazing. The Japanese specs looks dated already. But the question is if they can deliver the promising specs? (FYI Samsung is already today no1 in market share of plasmas in the world). It doesn't mean that I favour Samsung plasma's at all, just trying to say that the Korean's are determined to be as good as the best (just see the awesome speed in their NPD of mobile phones. The E700,D700,i500,i700 and x600)

    Have you noticed that Pioneer's PDP-504 is as cheap as Panny's PH50? And the specs are way higher, will Panny survive this?
    Philips is launching LcoS plasma, is it better?

    Otherwise, LCD is probably what all the major brands will choose as their future foundation. Panasonic, Philips and Toshiba are the next major pushers, to join Samsung, LG and Sharp. Sony while JVC has recently started. This leaves Pioneer, who has yet to launch LCD worldwide (does anyone know if they have LCD in Japan?) and Thomson. HCC's news article on Samsung's 54inch TFT-LCD says "Chuck in the facts that it’s apparently got a viewing angle of more than 170 degrees in all directions and weighs just 20kg, and it’s easy to see why so many manufacturers now see LCD as the flat-screen future ahead of plasma."

    Pleasant Reading. (Apologies for the very long thread)
