Hannspree Announces HDTVs Shaped Like Apples and Basketballs and the World Asks Why?!

So how would you feel about getting an Apple or Basketball shaped HDTV under your tree? I don’t think I’d be too happy about it, but maybe for little kids it would be nice. It’s not just the front that looks like the apple or basketball either, the entire thing is encased. These novelty TVs are 28-inch in size and offer a resolution of 1080P and cost about $500 each.

Hannspree, a leading manufacturer of novelty televisions and other consumer electronics, today announced a new line of 28-inch 1080p LCD HDTVs available in time for the holidays. Two out of the three new HDTVs released are in distinctive shapes: apple (HannsApple28) and basketball (HannsBasketball28). These models incorporate a 360-degree design so no matter which angle you view the product, the design preserves the theme. The third HDTV released keeps with the modern sleek piano-black bezel design.

In choosing an HDTV, consumers have little choice when it comes to reflecting their personal style. Specialty designed TVs must be custom ordered and can cost a fortune, while those opting for an inexpensive, traditional television can be disappointed in the quality or ordinariness. Hannspree is the only company to offer 28" screen size televisions, which provide users with added flexibility in allowing the viewing aspect ratio to be set to 16:9 format for Full HD 1080p resolution or an aspect ratio of 16:10 to utilize full 28" screen space for 1920×1200 monitor use. The unique designs from Hannspree allow individuals to express themselves with their choice of consumer electronic goods, while also watching their wallets.   

The affordably priced 28" ST289MUB LCD HDTV is available through BJs.com, CircuitCity.com, Costco.com (not available in store), and TigerDirect.com. The premium-designed HannsApple28-ST28FMUR and HannsBasketball28-ST285MUB LCD HDTVs are available exclusively through Hannspree retail stores at $499.99.
