    Hi,

    I think that all "connected TVs" get this new GUI, but not all TVs (2010) will have all the features such as USB recording...

    Hi

    @Philips
    Does the new GUI is also fixed to 16:9 on 21:9 TVs? It would be nice to have a flexible layout (e.g. the lower App button bar) without stretching or black bars on the left/right...

    Toengel, read your blog and saw the pictures of the new surface. I also think, that this will just be a GUI update.

    But I think the announcement is not clear at that point. I do not like throwing with marketing keywords which does not really clearly say what is supported on which device/model from which year. If there is too much promised, there will be people which are disappointed later on. One can see many, which are disappointed because of not getting new features without announcing them.

    Dear Philips Mod,

    I've seen that the model 37PFL 8605 H/12 could be updated with "Smart TV".

    What about 37 PFL8605 M/08? Why is it not listed?

    Please let us know.

    regards

    With philips you must buy a new tv every year.
    This is the best example of "loss os customer fidelity".
    Year by year the "1 year" previous models cannot be updated.
    One Example:
    2010 models: with NET TV and WITHOUT wireless keyboard
    2011 models: with NET TV and WITH wireless keyboard + USB recording.

    No retrofit kits, no upgrade planned, nothing. It's a shame.

    Normally the TV is not purchased every year in the families, I don't know in the Netherlands, maybe there they're given for free.
    Congratulations. Philips

    Hi,

    the link provided above is a UK-link - the M models arn't sold in the UK. But if you open the Italian site you can find your TV: http://www.philips.it/c/televisori/1..._NET_TV%3Dtrue

    Dont expect to see any changes in your 2010 tv.
    There must be some confusion there.
    I expect to see the new screen layout on my 2010 TV (37PFL7605H/12):

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/philips...7627428121983/

    Btw, it looks fantastic and the colour keys on the remote are put to use, it seems much simpler than before.

    I totally agree. An EXPENSIVE tv is bought for the long term use (minimum is 10 years). Philips must put their act together and make sure the 2010-models get new features aswell!!

    What is sure is that my next TV purchase (and suggestions for potential other TV customers) will not be Philips oriented.

    I've met several hotels here in Italy (all over Europe too) with the Philips TV in the room + wireless Philips keyboard (with a little navigation trackball top right of the keyboard) to interact in the Web (for sure since year 2009).

    And the 2010 TV purchasers don't deserve it for "technical reasons"?

    It's a shame! Nothing else!

    This is the reality

    What technical reasons?!
    Philips, it's Linux, just add the damn keyboard and mouse drivers!

    That is what I'm claiming since months!

    Maybe Philips is sure that the 2009-10 Philips TV purchasers (7000, 8000, 9000)
    will run to the shop invest another 1000 Euro to buy immediately the 2011 models.

    I'll run, not now but, if the purchase will be necessary in the future, the choicce will be for a competitor TV model.

    Now is Philips that should invest time, not in R&D solution, but in Customer fidelity management.

    Regarding the wireless keyboard, please Philips, look at this Philips solution (article of Sept. 2010):



    ----------------
    please read the article:

    http://www.appmarket.tv/opinion/571-...or-net-tv.html

    taken from the article:

    "Research confirms that almost 75% of the TV viewers would like the opportunity to interact with TV programs, advertising and online contents using the remote control. In addition, social networking at local TV stations has gained considerable significance over the past year, as broadcasters integrate this feature into their online presence and storytelling.

    Traditional on-screen user interface and remote controls are not designed or adequate to handle these features and thus a new approach is required. And while service providers are investing in new on-screen user interfaces, these can only offer a fulfilling user experience when combined with intuitive wireless input & control devices.
    With its new keyboard remote, Philips Home Control provides the perfect solution and shows that sophistication and innovation can go hand in hand.
    "


    This was written more Sept. 2010 (I've purchased my 8605 in December 2010) and nothing......nothing from us as wireless keyboard capability.

    We don't want the exact model attached but a simple wireless keyboard to take advantage from the NET TV availabilty.
    Are we asking for the moon !?!?!?!

    The wireless keyboard feature is reserved only for the "dummies that will purchase our future TV models".

    Sorry to say but this is what Philips is demonstrating.
