New Hitachi LCDs, plasmas

Hitachi has announced a full nine new TVs for the Japanese market, under its Wooo branding. The core of these are the Wooo UT series of LCDs, coming in at 32, 37 and 42-inch sizes. While only the 37- and 40-inch sets support 1080p and Deep Color, all three have 120Hz refresh rates, and a 250GB hard drive. These sets should be out on June 7th, at prices of 270,000, 340,000 and 440,000 yen ($2,669, $3,362 and $4,350). Also out on that date will be the Wooo XVs, which are essentially identical to the UTs, but lack hard drives and in each circumstance are 100,000 yen cheaper.

Coming sooner will be the Wooo Series 02s, a group of three plasma sets. All the displays have 250GB hard drives, the main difference being resolution; the 42-inch set is limited to 1024x180, while one 50-inch model runs at 720p, and another is 1080p-capable. The collection should be available on April 26th, at prices of 260,000, 360,000 and 500,000 yen ($2,571, $3,559 and $4,943). [via Impress Watch]
