Are there any pictures of the new tabletop 43" and 50" DLP TV's from Samsung? I thought all DLP TV's had to be either front or rear projection TV's. Are the new tabletop models similar to rear projection TV's without the base?
Here's the press release:
Dallas, Texas - 8th January 2002: Samsung Electronics America, Inc. (Samsung) and Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE: TXN) today announced an agreement under the terms of which Samsung will introduce a new range of large-screen, tabletop TVs using DLPâ„¢ technology.
