LG Plasma HDTV CES 2010 range boast super-narrow bezels

In comparison to their huge 2010 LCD range, LG's new plasma HDTVs are conspicuous by their scarcity: the company have announced a mere eight new sets at CES 2010.  Among those six, however, are some impressive sounding beasts and some mighty fine design.  LG's TruSlim Frame models, for instance, the PK550 and PJ350, have bezels just 0.9-inches wide; all of the 2010 sets are around two-inches deep, too, and LG have shaved off considerable weight as well.

Toshiba ZX900 Series CELL TV getting 2010 US release

"CELL," says Toshiba about its new range of CELL TVs for the US, "makes everything better", and while we're not sure whether that includes lingering health issues we'll concede that the company's new ZX900 Series CELL TV certainly cheers up any mild Winter depression we're having.  The vast 1080p HD set will come in 55- and 65-inch versions, and the CELL engine apparently throws in 143 times the processing power you'll find in a regular TV.  As for what Toshiba does with all that horsepower, they use it to churn through their new True Super Resolution technology.
