Sony readies summer Bravias

The model numbers have been listed as 'coming soon' on the likes of Amazon, et al for a while, but now we've got some solid deets on this summer's Bravia line-up.As expected there'll be five new LCDs to join the KDL-40W2000 (pictured) and chums.The 720p 26-incher gets Sony's Bravia Theatre Sync link-up plus two HDMI slots, the 32 and 40in boxes add an extra HDMI, while the 30 and 40in KDL-32D3000U and KDL-40D3000U also get enhanced 100Hz refresh rates.Meanwhile Sony's new range of FZ Vaio laptops all get fourth generation 'Santa Rosa' Centrino processors and a very healthy 2GB RAM. Top of the pile is the FZ11Z which bags Blu-ray – the lucky beggar. Also making a summer debut will be the new 11.1in TZ series, replacing the current TX range and promising a stonking nine hours of battery life. Puts our humble six-cell lappy to shame.
