Samsung aims for first Euro 3D TVs South Korean consumer electronics giant Samsung Electronics is aiming to be the first TV-maker to offer a full HD 1080p LED-backlit 3D television in Europe. It will begin shipments of its 3D-capable units to Europe next month along with expansions of its 8 and 7-series LEDs and 6-series LCDs.
For plasma proponents, Samsung is aiming to ship 3D plasma televisions to Europe in "late Spring". The company will also release its new BD-C6900, a 3D Blu-ray player, and will offer 9-series LEDs and the HT-C6930W home theater rig in Spring.

3D models come with "wireless-ready" capabilities and sport a built-in Ethernet connection to access the company's Internet@TV online applications store. Among the media downloads being offered from the service is software from the History Channel, Cartoon Network, Google's Picasa and BBC's iPlayer.

Where i work at, we just got our first Samsung UN46C7000 LED HDTV 240Hz.
Only thing is im not sure about the contrast. Its "Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio"

Is the Samsung BD-C6500 3D Ready because we have that one too, just came in about a week ago.

I can't believe this. America just underwent the switch to digital television less than a year ago and already they have started the switch to 3D. I don't think America is ready for the switch to 3D.

This shouldn't happen for at least another five years.
