1:34 /

At this year's Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, everyone wants to get their hands on big, ultra-thin televisions. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on some of the best in show.

Speaker: At CES in Las Vegas this year. All eyes are on the new category of television, the ultra thin. Right now, we're actually looking a 4 mm thin bezel and it's actually one of the lightest (??)TV, only weighs about 16-1/2 lbs. This 55-inch television from LG is expected to hit retail stores in the second half of 2012. It falls into the category of OLED, the O standing for Organic for it's green environmentally friendly properties. Speaker: What we're doing with organic LED is the screen itself is actually creating it's own light energy which cost less as far as energy consumption goes. Speaker: All other major television makers seem to be following the thin trend. For example, Samsung. Speaker: Thinner is in and it actually is less than .3 inches deep. Speaker: Sony too with their high resolution crystal LED screen. Speaker: We don't know when there will be a product yet, but it's definitely... it shows people where Sony's going when it comes to television. Speaker: Initial public reaction seems favorable. Speaker: It's like whoa, just like mind blowing. I want that. Speaker: They're absolutely amazing. I've never seen anything like it. I love it. Speaker: Here's the next generation of TV's, thin enough and light enough that you can pick them up and move them room to room. These are just prototypes from Sharp, but the company says to expect them in living rooms sometime in the near future. Speaker: I'd love to have a 40-inch in my bedroom and then take it out to a work out room or them move it a kitchen or even take it outdoors while doing a barbecue. Speaker: Now,that's a trend we can grab onto. In Las Vegas, I'm Cara Savoy, CNET.com for CBS News.
