Sanyo's LCD tellies
Lowestoft, that jewel of England’s east coast, is famous for many things including giving the world The Darkness, Terry Butcher, and, with a bit of help from Poland, Joseph Conrad. It also boasts one of the biggest wind turbines in the UK (on England’s most easterly point no less) has a huge Fish Finger factory and more Chavs per square mile than you would have thought humanly possible.
Its latest achievement is that it is the birthplace of Sanyo’s latest range of Signature LCD TVs. The 23- and 17-inch widescreen televisions are available in pearlescent or silver, have Active 3D Surround Sound, two SCART sockets and two 5-Watt (RMS) speakers. They’ve been designed by industrial product designer, Gwenael Nicolas, the man behind many product design and packaging projects for the likes of Tag Heuer, Issey Miyake and Nintendo. And yes they probably do pong a bit of cod. No news yet on a UK launch.
