Philips Cinema 21:9 Priced & Dated

I’m sure many of you know about the 56-inch Philips Cinema 21:9 ultra widescreen HDTV by now, if not check out this link: Philips Cinema 21:9.

Since it’s announcement there are two things people have wanted to know; 1) when will be available? , and 2), just how much will all this extra width cost?

We already know the Cinema 21:9 won’t be available in the U.S, well at least not initially, but lucky Europeans can get your hands on it for it very soon, in June in fact.

Well, that is assuming you have 4,000 euros to spare. Currently with the bad exchange rate, that 4,000 now equates to about £3,500.

Certainly not cheap, but then again, you will be buying a very unique (for now) amazing looking LCD HDTV.

So to sum up, the Philips Cinema 21:9 56-inch LCD HDTV with the 2.39:1 cinema aspect ratio will cost you £3,500 / 4,000 Euros, from June 09.
