Samsung Needle Slim HDTV is just 3mm thick

Samsung has recently shown off its Needle Slim LED-backlit HDTV, which manages to be just over a tenth of an inch (3mm) thick thin while offering a 40-inch screen size. The set otherwise has 1080p resolution and a 120Hz panel. Its contrast ratio is its only sacrifice and reaches a 5,000:1 static ratio.

In comparison, Samsung's current LED-backlit HDTVs are about 1.2 inches thick. No other details are yet known, including pricing or ship dates, though the set is expected to be released in Japan soon; international releases haven't yet been mentioned. [via Akihabara]
