HOLY SH!T. Sharp shows 108" TV.
(This is a preview, not a review.)

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in 2004, Samsung and LG showed plasma TVs in the 80-inch range. In 2005, Samsung was the champ with a 102-inch model. In 2006, Panasonic outdid them with a 103-incher.

This year Sharp is up to 108 inches with a flat set that could double as a garage door or a jet plane blast shield.

Since developing the world’s first 14-inch color TFT LCD TV in 1988, Sharp has made bigger and bigger screen sizes, introducing the first 45-inch and the first 65-inch models.

This humongous LCD TV measures nearly 8 feet wide and has 2.07 million pixels (1,920 x 1,080). You can expect the guys at Pimp My Ride to put it in the back of some poor kid's ratted-out pickup truck in a few months.
