Sharp launched its flagship television for the season, the ICC Purios LC-60HP10. The 60-incher features consumer 4K (aka Ultra HD) resolution, that's 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, and the ICC (integrated cognitive creation) image processor, which attendees of the October-held CEATEC 2012 event, such as Akihabara News, claim has to be seen to be believed.
The ICC Puros LC-60HP10, apart from its 4K panel and region-specific TV tuner, features THX4K and DLNA compliances, it features USB 3.0 ports, to which you can plug in USB mass-storage devices, from which the TV can play back content, and record content onto; and wired LAN, which lets you connect the TV to the internet to gain access to live and on-demand content providers, without needing set-top boxes masquerading as game consoles, to do that.
Global availability of the ICC Puros LC-60HP10 is expected only after February 2013. In Japan, the TV demands a hefty price of 2.62 million Yen (US $31,400), a sign that 4K still isn't mainstream, and that in a matter of years, you could regret spending a 5-figure sum on it. It's on Sharp now, to sell ICC well.
