Sharp's limited edition XS1 LCD HDTV comes to Canada

Not content with just loosing the succulent (and oh-so-silver) XS1 LCD HDTV in the UK, Sharp has just announced that the limited edition set can now be procured in Canada. It's available in two sizes -- the 65-inch LC-65XS1U or the 52-inch LC-52XS1U -- and both units boast a 10-bit Advanced Super View 1080p panel, 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, an ultra-slim design that is just 0.9-inches thick at the thinnest point and an all new RGB-LED backlight system that creates "the clearest and brightest screen that Sharp has ever produced." Too bad the little guy rings up at a penny under 12 grand while the big fellow checks in at $15,999.99. Oh, our bad -- didn't mean to startle you like that.
