The 52" Bravia XBR10 Edge lit LED High Definition Television is one of the thinnest HDTVs that Sony has produced. Bypassing plasma or LCD technology, the XBR10 series uses edge lit LED backlighting to produce a high contrast image. Sony claims the dynamic contrast rating is 1,000,000:1. Being a sidelit television allows for a skinny design, but the television isn't capable of localized background dimming.
Similar to other recent releases from their competitors, the XBR10 will take advantage of the web. The 52" Bravia XBR10 is capable of accessing YouTube, Amazon VOD, Slacker Radio, Sports Illustrated, Sony Pictures, Sony Music and eventually Netflix in the Fall of 2009. It also uses widgets to display the weather, news, financial info, entertainment, sports and Twitter feeds located at the bottom of the screen.
