Giant TVs (102 and 103 inches) where all the rage at GITEX 2006. Every major company (Panasonic, LG, Samsung) was trying to outdo the others.
Generally, this was the first time where I really experienced a lot of High Definition TV. Most of what I was where TV demos but they where totally amazing.
Flat screen TVs in Jordan seem to bee overpriced. And, to be honest, I still have not gotten my head around HDTV (and the HD Ready label for that matter). I also have got no clue about the competing HD DVD and Blueray technologies which are supposed to replace current DVD technology.
That’s why I picked up a copy of Wired Test from Dubai airport, which has ratings of all the latest gadgets. Let’s see if I actually can learn more about the future of TV. I actually hardly watch any TV anymore. So sometimes I ask my self: what’s the point?
I am glad to be back in Amman, by the way..
