Android TV as an industry, has somewhat come to life in recent weeks and months. What appeared to be a stagnating platform, has seen a surge in activity with a number of new devices and upgrades/updates landing. In terms of the new hardware, standalone options like the Razer Forge TV and the NVIDIA SHIELD have come to market, while in terms of built-in options, sets running on Android TV and offering 4K resolution displays have become available from Sharp.
That said, at CES at the start of this year, Sony unveiled a number of built-in options that would also be coming running on Android TV. These were also 4K resolution displays but what seemed to set these apart from the Sharp and Toshiba options was the thinnest of the Sony offerings. The Sony X900C and X910C sets were specifically coined as some of the thinnest TVs available, let alone Android TV based ones and touted as being thinner than a smartphone with a depth of less than 0.2-inches. Well, following on from the unveiling of the wide range of Sony Android TV sets which were due to hit the market, back in April, Sony released pricing and availability details for much of their sets. This was for virtually all sets excluding the X900c and X910C. In terms of these, Sony simply stated that they would be available sometime in the summer with no firm details on pricing.
Following on from this last point, Sony have now confirmed both the pricing and time-frame of availability for the ultra-thin, Ultra HD X900C and X910C. In terms of the X900C, this unit will be available in both 55-inch and 65-inch options. The 55-inch version will cost $2,499 and the 65-inch version will come in at $3,999. Moving to the larger X910C variant, this is a 75-inch set and will cost consumers $5,499. Both the X900C sets have now officially began their pre-sale period (started yesterday) and are available to pre-order until their full and general release which is now scheduled for next month. Pre-orders can be made directly from Sony (in-store and online) as well as from Amazon and Best Buy online. While the X910C is listed as being available in the summer.
