Panasonic and LG won't be the only ones with Skype-enabled HDTVs
, though we peeped it in the specs earlier
, Samsung has officially announced its new 7000
series televisions will also include access. Accessible through the embedded Samsung Apps
service, it appears it will work with the new HD video processing webcams just like the others, so users can log in to or create an account with the remote then make video or voice calls away from the PC. We heard at CES those cameras could run as high as $200, check out the CES 2010 demo from Panasonic
to see if couch videoconferencing is worth the additional expense.
