After the hubbub at CES, it appears that the 3D movement is well under way. Over in the States, consumers can now commence pre-orders for the first of Samsung's 3D TVs with kudos to Amazon.com as a launchpad. The 55-inch UN55C7000 3D TV will tout LED backlights and a Skype widget. Folks over in Europe, however, can only wait for further news as to when the initial wave of 3D TVs would hit their grounds.
Televisions.com — While Europe speculates about the due date for 3D TVs, Amazon.com is now allowing US customers to pre-order a 55-inch model for 3,299 USD (2,200 GBP). The UN55C7000 has four HDMI inputs, two USB sockets, and an edge-lit LED-LCD panel.
