HP Announces 2007 MediaSmart TV
HP's 37-inch LCD MediaSmart TV has been upgraded for 2007, and according to specs released at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month, the improvements are manifold.
New screen sizes of 42 and 47 inches will be available in 1080p technology. It has the same ability to stream audio or video files from a PC and connect to the Internet, but now the wireless has been upgraded (from 802.11 a/b/g to 11n) and the TVs can aggregate streams of content from multiple PCs.
The TVs will launch in late spring, and HP says that the TVs will cost about $300 more than the LCD models of their same-size TVs.
