Shiny at IFA 2008: The Sharp Aquos XS1 is a concept no more


Last year, this seriously skinny LCD TV was just another highly anticipated concept TV. Fast forward 365 days and it’s now in full blown production. So that means we get to put our coveting into purchasing action very soon. We’re being told October. At .9 inches (23mm), it’s just under an inch thick and comes in either 52 or 65-inch models. It also displays 1080p, has a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and a 6ms response time.

It packs a detachable speaker system and five 2.1 channel speakers to reproduce a sound with complete accuracy. Want more? Well it also features a gallery mode to enable you to showcase your latest pics in full HD, either as a slideshow or as an interior centrepiece via USB.

It’s size zero attributes will come in handy when you’re trying to mount it on the wall or cart it around from room to room.

No word on the price but it’s pretty obvious it’s not gonna be cheap.
