We might have to take the WirelessHD
group's claims of mass adoption pricing
more seriously now that VIZIO has made plans to integrate 60GHz chipsets from SiBEAM
into its XVT line of LED backlit LCDs. SiBEAM is also planning to demo some the no-wires hookup at its off-site CES location, but since we've seen the technology at work, the only big question is how cheap can it get? The top of the line Panasonic Z1 made our gift guide despite a high price, but for VIZIO
to send its first products onto Wal-mart and Costco shelves later this year it'll have to start at somewhere below the $6k mark.
