4K TV's aren't just for those couple of Netflix shows or YouTube videos you use to show off to your friends, they are also a viable replacement for a monitor.  If you pick the right one you not only get 4K resolutions but also HDR and after investing that much dosh you might not be looking at upgrading your PC's monitor any time soon.  Drop by TechSpot for a look at three TV's they recommend, ranging from a mere $630 up to $2100, with a few honourable mentions as well.

Meet TCL's Palm Palm, a kitten like phone

As strange as it seems, TCL is launching a new Palm product which is thankfully not running a new version of WebOS but instead has gone with Android 8.1.  The phone is very cute, with a tiny 3.3" display, and a body of 96.6x50.6mm (3.8x2") in total.  Inside you will find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435, 3GB of RAM, and an 800mAh battery, for connectivity USB-C, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LTE.  This Palm will fit in your hand and you won't get a lot of things done with the minimalist hardware, providing the similarity to a kitten, including the powerful attraction some will feel towards it.

Ars Technica has the rest of what is known about the Palm Palm here, including what TCL imagines you will use it for.

"If you recall, Palm, creator of the Palm Pilot and WebOS, bombed out of the smartphone market and was purchased by HP. Palm died at HP after a short run of tablets and smartphones, and eventually Chinese smartphone company TCL snatched up the rights to the Palm brand in 2014, and things have been quiet since then."

CES: 2013 TCL Shows Off Massive 110" 4K China Star 3D LCD Television

Ultra HD televisions were a popular item at CES 2013, and Chinese manufacturer TCL was not about to be left out of the party. It showed off a massive 110” China Star 3D 4K LCD television that will be featured in Marvel’s upcoming Iron Man 3 film. The 110” Ultra HD TV features a 4K resolution LED backlit-LCD display, active 3D technology, dynamic backlighting, and an 800 nits brightness rating. Reportedly, the TV also has mutli-touch input which likely means that it has support for applications.

At 110” the China Star TV would be impressive for a 1080p panel, but with its 4K resolution it is sure to make explosions and car chases look amazing! Unfortunately, there is no word on pricing, or if it will ever come to the United States. This seems to be more of a proof-of-concept TV where the experience and technologies used to develop it will be rolled out into future generations of TVs that will actually be available to consumers. It is one stepping stone on the way to affordable 4K (eventually), and that's a good thing. You can find TCL's full press release here.
