The Pearl wasn't the only significant product introduction from Sony at CEDIA 2006. Sony introduced a big, 52" BRAVIA LCD flat panel with full-on 1080p resolution. As with the 46" BRAVIA LCD we recently reviewed (and dug) this one is loaded with premium performance options and features, and overall looks like an XBR set through and through. Shipping in November. This is the same set as the KDL-52XBR2, but with a gloss black bezel for an extra 300 bones. Shipping in November.
