Thin enough for me, I think you are picking nits, I am just guessing but that looks like it is about 4 - 5 in thick. It looks like it could hang on a wall nicely or fit on a table top reasonably. If it is a CRT and has CRT blacks and contrast, that would be very interesting compared to plasma. This is why I would like to see some links and data on this.
I remember way back in the dawn of laptop computers, there was one company making notebooks with a flat CRT screen. Apparently the guns fired from the side and the beam was guided with some sort of array of magnets. This technology was not long-lived.
Hmm...after reading both articles, they both say 35cm...so maybe that is correct. Also it says it boasts a 30% reduction.
I'm thinking maybe the 32" which appears to be only 4" deep may only be that thin at the edges...and might have a "bump" in the back that we can't see from the angle of the picture...similar to the bump on the 21" model.
The silver one on the left is their "Production 21" model 4:3
& the gold colored one on the right is their 32" Widescreen Prototype.
They are clearly calling this 35 cm depth...
"To be launched is the company's prototype Cybertube+SuperSlim 32" widescreen CPT that boasts of a 30 percent depth reduction. It measures only 35 cms from front to back and features a glass envelope that has a significantly shallower profile. LG.Philips Displays, the world's No. 1 cathode ray tube (CRT) display provider, will also present the new SuperSlim 21" Real Flat with the same depth of 35 cm as the 32" prototype."
Which a 30% reduction in depth means they are going from approx 20" to 14".
