Update: Sony has withdrawn its 3D bundle offer due to "supply challenges".

Just in time for the World Cup, Sony is releasing a limited quantity of its 3D-optional HX800 televisions prior to its official release in July. There are three models in the HX800 range: a 40-inch (AU$2799), a 46-inch (AU$3499) and a 55-inch (AU$4699).

The 46-inch KDL46HX800 sits in the sweet spot of the range and it features an edge-lit LED panel with a 1080p resolution. For sports watchers, it features a 200Hz MotionFlow Engine for judder-free playback.

Like the Sony HX900, 3D is optional on this television and requires the addition of active shutter glasses (AU$99 each) and a 3D transmitter (AU$69). As a tie-in to the World Cup, Sony will be bundling the 3D system and two pairs of glasses along with a PS3 console. Vouchers in the box will enable free downloads of 3D-enabled games.

Like many of this year's Sony TVs, the HX800 features wireless connectivity and access to Sony's Bravia Internet Video service. This enables you to watch services such as YouTube and Yahoo7 catch-up TV without needing a PC.
