As announced in today's press conference
, gamers are clearly in Sharp's sights for 2008 as an area of corporate growth. So here they are with their second generation 32-inch panel. The new 1080p set features a slimmer design and unique swivel stand. A "Game Mode" is said to optimize picture quality for game playing while the remote control allows for a quick swap of inputs. A Mountain Dew-ey "Vyper Drive" mode supposedly "eliminates perceptible lag time between game console input and the TV display." Rounding things out then is a 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 450 cd/m2 brightness, 3x HDMI 1.3 and 2x component inputs, and a custom design by renowned industrial designer, Toshiyuki Kita. Available in glossy finishes including black, red wine, and white for $1600 starting now.
