Freakin' Friday! Toshiba 55" 3D TV Huge Price Reduction


While most retailers are offering savings on most of their HDTVs this holiday season, online retailers are doing the same. Case in point, the Toshiba 55WX800. Normally priced at $3299.99, it is now less than half of that at Amazon. With a 7,000,000:1 contrast ratio and 240Hz refresh rate, the 55" TV has built in WiFi for accessing online content and is 3D ready.

Panasonic Retains Avatar Exclusivity


Panasonic has managed to keep Avatar exclusive to its company through February 2012. This means that if you want to see it in all its 3D glory, you have to invest in that company. Because Panasonic heavily supported the making of, it is only logical that this deal is a no-brainer. Admit it, didn't the movie just blow you away and make you crave the 3D version to play innumerable times? And if you already own one of their 3DTVs, you can get a free copy of the film.

3DTV Slow to Reach Consumers


While NAV readers already know that we think 3D is a wondrous thing, we also realize that it is still out of reach for the average consumer. According to a recent report from DisplaySearch, only 2% of all flat panels shipped in 2010 have been 3DTVs. The study also stated that with more content and technological advances in the next few years, that small percentage (equal to 3.2 million) will jump to 41% (90 million) by 2014.

James Cameron Plans 3D Music Video With BEP


Is there anything 3D related that James Cameron isn't involved in? This time, watch for his latest to be an international concert-length movie with the Black Eyed Peas. Although U2 beat them with their 2006 Vertigo tour in 2008, you know that one from the award winning director will be state of the art. Look for Justin Bieber, N.E.R.D., Kylie Monogue, the Jonas Brothers, and Kenny Chesney to get in on the action. Of course, just as 3D movies bumped up the price of a movie ticket to two digits, expect to pay up to $18.00 for a 3D CD.

HBO to Offer 3D Channel?

hbochannels copy.jpg

We have found that most major broadcast rumors tend to be true and as HBO already has 7 channels available, it is not really a surprise that they may be launching the first on demand 3D channel next year. Watch for other companies to follow suit. Of course, the addition will not only involve a provider, the user must own a 3DTV. Further rumblings says that a 3D version of "Inception" will be the first film shown.

Sharp to Release AQUOS Blu-Ray 3D


As we have mentioned before, when we covet here at NAV, one of the top choices has to be the Sharp AQUOS line with pictures so impressive it is difficult to tear us away from electronics departments in warehouse clubs. So the release of three new Blu-ray recorders, coming in October and November, makes us practically Pavlovian. The BD-HDW65, BD-HDW63, and BD-HDS65 support 3D and their new standard BDXL, with the main difference being in the amount of storage.

Panasonic Likely to Offer 3D Avatar


Avatar purists, it seems almost a sure thing that Panasonic will be offering the movie in full HD 3D Blu-ray format when you purchase a 3D HDTV beginning in December. The film will come packed in some Panasonic Viera 3D models and those who already have one of their 3D TVs will be able to purchase it as well. A release for the rest of us should come in Q1 2011.
