Sony Japan's ZX1 series 40-inch display is only 9.9mm thick at its narrowest, and 26 pounds. The display itself has only 1 HDMI port, while a wireless box can send the 120Hz, 1080p display up to 1080i images over a 5GHz channel many suspect is WHDM. That external port box will have 3 HDMI, 2 component, s-video, VGA, and even USB, mouse, and LAN port. All menus will be driven through an XMB Playstation-style crossmedia interface. Check out our hands-on of the skinny TV at IFA here. [Sony JP via Sony Insider]

Yes, not impressive at all - all they did was to decide to move the internal electronics to an external box....

...anyone who has ever opened a laptop or lcd tv to repair or service it knows that most panels ARE this flat natively...every modern television could be this flat if they all decided to move the junk electronics into an external box
