108-inch Sharp LCD headed for U.S. market

September shipment is expected.


It often takes awhile for Japanese electronics to make their way across the Pacific, if they get here at all. But Sharp bucked that trend in a big way, literally, by saying its 108-inch LCD would be shipping to U.S. shores by September.

Only last week this beast made its first commercial appearance at Tokyo's Shinjuku Piccadilly multiplex complex, all 93.9 inches by 52.9 inches of it in full-HD 1080p resolution. Now the LB-1085 super-monitor will be intimidating Americans as well, and not just because of its imposing stature: The price, by Engadget's calculations, will weigh in around $100,000.
