This is indeed an exciting announcement, and it's created a flood of discussion on the net, esp. at AVS. While this technology isn't new (D-ILA from JVC for years, LCOS from Hitachi & Toshiba), it looks like Sony has made some significant refinements that increase performance. The 3000:1 contrast ratio won't be that high in an actual product, though, so don't get too excited. Still, a real world product with half that would be over double the current performance of JVC & Hitachi projectors, and the resolution is of course to die for!
Nobody knows yet at what price point Sony is likely to bring out this technology. Sounds like they're planning both FP and RP devices. It'd be great to see this push HD2 DLP pricing down from the $10k range.
