Samsung C9000 HDTV: Thin & Touchscreen Remote

Undoubtedly, this was one of the most beautiful HDTV sets at CES. It's ultra-thin, but it distinguishes itself from all of the other sets by having one of the most innovative remotes ever.

The Samsung C9000 is LED-lit and pretty swanky-looking. The WiFi powered remote is what sets it apart. We have to say that it reminds us of an iPhone, but hey, isn't everyone trying to make their devices look like an iPhone? Then again, this is Samsung, and they could have just used one of their own phone designs for this remote.

The remote lets you navigate the web in a compact fashion while still being in front of your set. It kind of acts like a small, auxiliary monitor. It works kind of like the Remote app for the iPhone. The display of the remote is LCD, not OLED. You can also browse TV channels. If something tickles your fancy, tap it and voila! It's up on the big screen. Naturally, this HDTV can be used to playback files over your network, though it hasn't been confirmed yet what kind of files it supports. However, it does support full 1080p resolution.

The HDTV also supports 3D and no price has been announced, but we're guessing that it will be ludicrously expensive. Still, give it a few product cycles, and this tech will trickle down to the average consumer.
