First Look: Samsung 8000 series plasma

0:59 /

At CES 2010, Brian Tong checks out Samsung's Internet-enabled 8000 series plasma television.

[ music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Brian Tong here at CES 2010. I'm here with a Samsung 8000 series plasma television. The set reaches up to 63-inches in size. It is Internet enabled, so you have WIFI compatible with BGNN to get access to their Internet@TV services for streaming videos. And also that app store that they're really trying to push now within TV's, where you get free apps, some paid apps, and even subscription based apps. So that's a thing that they're really trying to develop. And if you're curious, this is also one of their 3D ready television sets. Now there's two other stories, they really worked on making this, the depth of this television smaller, so it's less than 1.3 inches, as well as the fact that with energy consumption it saves 40% the amount of power than the previous generation of the 8000 series. This plasma TV will be available sometime in the first half of 2010. There is no pricing set, but here's your first look at the 8000 plasma TV series from Samsung. ^E00:00:54
