Philips Goes Curved, 4K, 1,000Hz, Android and Colourful

Whoever wrote the press release for the new Philips 8909 TV is currently having a well deserved brain rest, after shoe-horning thousands of tech terms into the description of the maker's latest high-end TV.

The 55-inch 8909 is the first curved TV from the company and new owner TP Vision, combining 4K Ultra High Definition output with its three-sided AmbiLight backlighting system -- and this one's powered by Android 4.2.2. It's going to come with a manual as big as a 1990s Sony CRT. [Philips]
