    Just had a friend cut and paste a blurb about a Sony press release

    "Sony announced today they are on the verge of resurrecting the Trinitron name for a new line of cathode ray based widescreen high definition TVs. The TVs will have more in common technologically with the small FD series Watchman TVs than the traditional Sony Trintron TVs remembered so fondly by many. The new TVs have flat screens and utilize an updated version of the traditional electron guns that were common in cathode ray 'tube' televisions.

    A Sony spokesman is quoted as saying "We will definitely be producing a 30 inch version and a larger 36 inch version. Production of sizes larger than 36 inches are dependent on whether or not our new thin-glass, low vacuum technology can be applied in an economical manner". Sony has stated the newly patented thin-glass technology will allow a weight reduction of approximately 60% compared to traditional cathode ray televisions.

    The Sony spokesman added "We feel that LCD flatscreen televisions will continue to account for the majority of the market share in the future, but we also feel there is a not insignificant segment of the population who will support the new Trinitron and who miss having a more traditional television." The spokesman said that the initial models will be produced in a 'table top' format, but that console models will soon follow.
