It has been a busy few days here at CES. Today the coolest things I saw were the huge 150-inch plasma TV at the Panasonic booth and the Samsung OLED TVs. The TV is gynormous and has a very nice picture as well. Panasonic wasn’t releasing pricing or availability info on the huge screen. The closest I could get was a statement from the PR gal showing me around that the 103-inch plasma was selling for around $75,000. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the set come in at around the $100,000 area.

Samsung has the most impressive booth at the show with its fantastic looking 31-inch OLED TV. Not only is the set very thin, but the image quality is exceptional. This set has the deepest blacks I have ever seen and reds were better than I have seen as well. Samsung also had a small OLED TV that appeared to be around 11-inches on display as well.

At the same display Samsung was showing off a large 82-inch flat panel TV that boasted a resolution of 3840 x 2160, which Samsung calls Ultra High Definition. The still images and video that Samsung was displaying on the TV were awesome to behold. The difference in the image quality of the Ultra High Definition set over standard 1080p HD images is as significant as when you compare SD programming to 1080p.

Neonode also had an impressive mobile phone at its booth that featured a touch screen that responds to finger swipes. The tiny little phone ships with a 1GB microSD card for storage and can play music as well as video. The interface the phone uses is very simple to use and the design of the phone makes my iPhone look fat by comparison. While no carriers are selling the phone at this time, the PR rep noted that it operates on the GSM sim card carriers like AT&T. The phone would sell for around $299 with a service plan according to the rep.
