Sony launches 9.9mm Sony Bravia

Posted: May 22, 2009 in Tech

Sony Philippines has brought its thinnest LCD TV measuring 9.9mm and weighs 15kg. The TV’s picture quality is enhanced by Bravia Engine2 which supports full HD (1920×1080) resolution, Edge LED, 100MHz Motionflow and Image Blur reduction.

Other features include Live Color creation, 24p Cinema, XMB (Xross Media Bar), Bravia Theatre Sync and Wireless HD. Wireless HD allows the TV to receive the content via the supplied HD media receiver.

The wires and cables are connected to the media receiver and the TV wirelessly communicates with the receiver to display images.

Apple is reportedly working on a “media pad” tablet to fit between its iPod touch and MacBook devices. The idea is that it’d be better for surfing the Web, watching movies, and reading books than the iPod or iPhone.

“We expect the development of such an OS to be underway currently, but its complexity, along with our conversations with a key company in the mobile space, leads us to believe it will not launch until CY10″ Gene Munster, analyst, Piper Jaffray

A jury in a US District Court in Tyler, Texas, has ordered Microsoft to pay $200 million to Canadian software firm i4i LP for willfully infringing on i4i’s electronic document processing patent.

i4i LP claims that Microsoft knew about i4i’s patent and willfully infringed it in Word 2007 and 2003. Those products use XML technology to encode and customize documents, and Microsoft’s customization of XML, i4i says, violates its patent.

Microsoft said it will appeal the verdict.
