Aw, aren't these things just as cute as a button? Rather than dishing out a new family of big screen flat-panels (or in addition to, actually), Sharp has decided to introduce a trio of smaller sets more suited for a bedroom or well-equipped kitchen. Available in 16- and 20-inch sizes, the new AQUOS E-series features a 1,366 x 768 resolution, 1,200:1 contrast ratio, 450 cd/m2 brightness and built-in analog / digital TV tuners; you'll also find a pair of HDMI ports alongside a PC input, S-Video jack and two composite sockets. The sets are expected to land in the middle of next month in Japan for ¥85,000 ($778) / ¥95,000 ($870).
