Several companies have been working on "shallow CRT" designs to further warp the "flat TV" paradigm, but later this year, Samsung intends to beat them all to market when it begins small-scale production of a cathode ray tube with a depth of only 35 centimeters. The company giant expects volume shipments of the svelte tubes in otherwise beefy 32in/80cm, 1080 line televisions beginning next year.
By 2006, the Korean electronics giant anticipates that its entire CRT lineup will be updated with the new tubes, just in time for the next revision of its technology, which will slim CRTs down to 20cm. Samsung's shallower TVs will be initially priced at roughly USD $1000.
