Samsung said in January that its is already mass-producing 3D TVs.

All of the 3D models will feature built-in Ethernet connection and what Samsung called "wireless-ready capabilities", which essentially means they have a USB port that can take an optional dongle.

All the sets will feature Samsung's Internet@TV an online apps store, which will become the source for media player software from the History Channel, the Cartoon Network, YouTube-alike Dailymotion, Google Picasa, Lovefilm and music video site Muzu.
