While we wait to see when — or even if — any of the 110-inch TVs shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 will be made available in Australia, Sharp has jumped in with its LC-90LE740X.

The 90-inch LED LCD panel has smart-TV functionality, with standard Full HD resolution of 1080p. The 3DTV ships with a LAN adaptor and two sets of 3D glasses.

The pricing decision, however, seems unusual. At AU$20,999, the Sharp is AU$5000 more than LG's 84-inch Ultra HDTV . While the extra six inches of screen size may be a draw card for many, LG's "future resistance" of its Ultra HD capacity, as well as the cash savings, seems likely to make the Sharp a hard sell.
