While Gregory is on his way over to aid in our on-site coverage at CES 2009, the blogosphere has already been bombarded by a slew of manufacturer announcements regarding new television models. We've collected them to one list and, from the looks of it, if one trend will be prevalent throughout the new year, it's going to be the "thinnovation" treatment on HDTVs. Now, look onward in envy as your year-old HDTV may end up looking like a giant next to these wafer-thin beauties...
The TV seen above is the Samsung Luxia LED TV range
. It will be available in sizes 40 to 55-inches and should be coming out later this year.
This is Panasonic's 0.33-inch thick Neo Eco Plasma and it utilizes 50% less energy than previous Panasonic models. Thin and green? Gotta love it! [Image: Dvice]

Another LG release includes their LH9500 model , a 1-inch thick, 55-inch LED-backlit HDTV model.
This JVC 32-inch model should be available to viewing as well, though we've yet to see how thin this bad boy truly is. On the press release, JVC claims it to be 0.27-inches thick and a mere 11 pounds in weight. [Via: Dvice]
