Sony reminds world: We make TVs, too
What does Sony do, exactly? Insurance, cosmetics, restaurants, movies, music -- and, oh, right, doesn't it make televisions, too? Sony decided to clear up any confusion on that last point by announcing seven Bravia LCD TVs and five gigantic rear-projection Grand Wega models. These must be what Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer means by "champion" products -- if by "champion," he means "extremely expensive." The top-of-the-line Grand Wega model will set you back $7,800. Of course, for that price, you get a 70-inch screen, multiple HDMI inputs for high-definition TV, 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, and major bragging rights the next time you have friends over to watch a game.
