Sharp launches AQUOS D TVs with Yahoo videos

updated 12:05 pm EDT, Mon May 11, 2009


Sharp made a push in earnest into Internet-capable TVs on Monday with the launch of the AQUOS D series in its home country of Japan. The new sets add support for a Yahoo video service that streams multiple content channels online using a built-in Ethernet link. They also bring 1080p, faster 120Hz panels and 15,000:1 dynamic contrast ratios for every set.

Four sets make up the range with sizes of 32, 40, 46 and 52 inches that all share the same built-in 20W stereo speakers and 3 HDMI inputs. Prices aren't officially listed but vary from the equivalent of $2,052 for the 32-inch D series to $4,618 for the range-topping 52-inch screen. All ship to Japan on June 10th; plans for a US release aren't public but are expected later on in the year. [via Impress]
