Hannspree Ships New Line Of 28" HDTVs: Apples & Basketballs Included

Well, it's just about time to box up those last gifts, but if you still need "something special" for that "special someone," how about a totally insane looking television? Hannspree has been known to create some pretty wild electronics in the past, and the company's newest line of HDTVs are definitely wild. This new line of 28" HDTVs are tailor made for bedroom use, but probably only in bedrooms of people aged 12 or under.

Each one has a 1080p panel and a very distinct design, shaped like an Apple, a Basketball, and a normal television. These models incorporate a 360-degree design so no matter which angle you view the product, the design preserves the theme. The third HDTV released keeps with the modern sleek piano-black bezel design.  

Other specifications include a 27.5" viewable screen area, a 1920x1200 native resolution, a 10000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, two HDMI ports, a component input, S-Video/Composite jacks, a USB 2.0 port and an integrated ATSC/NTSC/Clear QAM TV tuner. There's also a pair of 10W speakers, a VESA wall mount and an Energy Star compliance label. The company also throws in an HDMI cable and universal remote, with each one costing $499.99. These are available now across the web, and trust us, you can't miss 'em!

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Hannspree, a leading manufacturer of novelty televisions and other consumer electronics, today announced a new line of 28-inch 1080p LCD HDTVs available in time for the holidays. Two out of the three new HDTVs released are in distinctive shapes: apple (HannsApple28) and basketball (HannsBasketball28).

The third HDTV released keeps with the modern sleek piano-black bezel design.  

In choosing an HDTV, consumers have little choice when it comes to reflecting their personal style. Specialty designed TVs must be custom ordered and can cost a fortune, while those opting for an inexpensive, traditional television can be disappointed in the quality or ordinariness. Hannspree is the only company to offer 28" screen size televisions, which provide users with added flexibility in allowing the viewing aspect ratio to be set to 16:9 format for Full HD 1080p resolution or an aspect ratio of 16:10 to utilize full 28" screen space for 1920x1200 monitor use. The unique designs from Hannspree allow individuals to express themselves with their choice of consumer electronic goods, while also watching their wallets.    

"Our new novelty televisions capture the essence of a bold and powerful creative mind that can extend personal expression to routine items. By offering an affordable line of HDTVs along with the premium design HDTVs, Hannspree gives consumer plenty of choices based on their needs and preferences," said James Fitzgerald, Sr. Director of Marketing and Sales.

Why does everyone list dynamic contrast radio? The black used in it to get those crazy high ratios is from the TV in full standby mode. You'll never see anything close to it in use, with the actual viewable contrast ratio possibly being total crap.
