Flatscreen TVs, how flat can we get?

ENTERTAINMENT/TECHNOLOGY - Flatscreen TVs are getting thinner and thinner and lighter and lighter...

So lightweight companies like Samsung, Sony, LG, Logitech are pushing the idea that they're super easy to transport. Its essentially the same technology used in iPads and tablets, but on a larger scale.

Of course, no serious person is going to carry a whole TV around with them... unless they really want it to get stolen or broken. But its really just the concept that they're that easy to transport.

In the case of Samsung they're also pushing the idea that their TVs are "Smarter", as per Web TVs and Internet TVs, or whatever name you want to call them. The concept here is to make TVs more like SmartPhones, so people can do a lot more on them than just watch TV or browse the internet. This new era of TVs will come with downloadable games (just like a SmartPhone) so that even if there's nothing on TV, people can just play a game instead.

Which promises to really open up the market for makers of video games.

It also means the market is now ready for "Wireless TV", meaning you won't need an antennae, cable or satellite any more. It will just automatically connect to the wireless network the same way your cellphone does.

But you can be sure it won't be cheap. Wireless providers will probably be charging a fortune for service.
