—Ikea, most notably known for their space saving and cost-effective furniture has officially kicked off the battle of the smart television with their Uppleva TV.
Uppleva–meaning "Experience" in Swedish–is a forward thinking TV hub that hopes to answer to all of your home theatre needs. Running with that idea, the Scandinavian brand took the all-in-one TV stand to an entirely new level. Not only will the furniture come with an embedded blu-ray/dvd/cd player, surround sound, and built-in USB/HDMI ports, it will also come equipped with an HD LED television that is wi-fi enabled, and offers the ability to browse the Internet via its pre-installed Opera browser.
With TV sizes ranging from 24"-46", you can expect more details to be announced as we near its expected fall release date.
