Japan's Funai to launch 42-inch LCD TV and BD player in N. America, says paper

Japan-based Funai Electric plans to launch a 42-inch full high-definition (HD) LCD TV and next-generation Blu-ray Disc (BD) player in North America in fall, according to the Japanese-language Nihon Keizai Shimbun.

The 42-inch LCD TV will adopt panels from Taiwan-based players while the TV will be assembled in China, the paper cited sources in saying, adding that the first batch of the shipments of the 42-inch TVs will be 100,000-200,000 units.

Low Cost Funai Blu-ray Player This Fall

Posted June 22, 2007 by Josh

"The first low cost Blu-ray player will hit US shelves this fall from Funai, according to reports from Japan. As we reported earlier, Funai makes low costs electronics which are then sold under brand names such as Sylvania, Emerson, and Magnavox. While no pricing or specs have yet been released, expect pricing to be lower than players from top manufacturers, which are expected to drop to around $400 for the holiday season.

At this year's CES, HD DVD announced that they would leverage cheap players from China to reach a wider marketplace. Since then, the camp has been very quite as to when these players would actually show up. It appears that Blu-ray may match their claim, or even beat it, effectively nullifying any pricing advantage this important holiday season."

$400 isn't a bargain.
