Hitachi's Wooo9000 displays deal with Japan's threatening circle surplus


Today's oddly named gadget from Japan is brought to you by the letter "o" and his drunken twin, the number zero. Actually, we can't really explain to you the thought that went into the "Wooo9000" moniker for Hitachi's new display lineup, but we can give you a rundown on specs while we wait for the other signs of the apocalypse to come. The line includes four plasma displays at 37 and 42-inches, half with a built-in HDD and half without, all of which claim to be "1080" displays. We're guessing 1080 refers to 1080i support, but the specs aren't clear. The 37-inch HDD version includes a 250GB drive, while the 42-incher goes for 500GB. In the LCD end there are two 32-inch displays, each at a 1366 x 768 resolution, with one sporting a 250GB HDD. There's no word when these displays will be available, or at what cost, but we can only hope they're worthy of the prestigious Wooo legacy.
