Sharp UK is announcing an interesting flagship model at IFA that might not ever see the US shores, but could point the way for the next gen LCD coming from the company. But this HD1 designated LCD has a 160GB HDD presumably for DVR functions and a USB drive for photo viewing. Stats like 46 and 52-inch models, along with 1080p, 15000:1 contrast ratios make it sound very much like the current flagships that we know as the 92-series. There's also an XL2 and X20 series of HDTVs, but since all of this is likely UK fodder, we'll wait til the US next gen stuff comes out to delve deeper.
