Also of note is the fact the C8000 series are the only TVs announced that include Samsung "Seamess Dimming Technology"(C9000/7000/6500 all strictly use traditional edge LED lighting) which, they claim, combines the form factor of edge lit, with PQ that rivals full array backlight local dimming (their words not mine)
I am guessing these TVs will start arriving on the market march/april timeframe
I believe Samsung has purposely neglected distribution dates and pricing specifics during CES so as minimize impact on existing inventory in the distribution channel.
Digitimes confirms production began January and there are several important events on the horizon in the near term which includes the 2010 Lunar New Year in Asia Feb 14, 2010 and globally the Winter Olympics and then a few months later we have the World Cup.
Would be nice to see Samsung make some kind of jump beyond 55" LED though as we have Sony going with 60" via Sharp panels and Sharp jumping to a 68"/60", Toshiba 65" Cell TV, and Vizio's future monster 72". I wouldn't be surprised to see Samsung rebadging the 65" from AUO which is announced LED 3D - I believe AUO is the source of Toshiba's 65" Cell TV since Sharp is moving away from 65" in LED version anyways.
