24 Sep 2009 | Rasmus Larsen |

<p align=center><i>FlatpanelsHD is on spot on the world’s largest consumer electronics fair IFA 2009 in Berlin. Read about all the new product launches and trends from IFA 2009 on the FlatpanelsHD front page or in our <a href=/ifa2009fair.php><b>IFA 2009 coverage page</b></a></i>.</p>It was expected that Samsung would exhibit the B9000 or at least the B8500 model at this year's IFA 2009 in Berlin – but that didn’t happen. Neither of the two models was on display and it seems that Samsung (like all of the other TV manufacturers) will be postponing new product launches until January at CES 2010 in Las Vegas. <br /><br />Samsung has already announced a new B8500 in their LED-TV series, with LED backlight and local dimming. Rumours and the first information about a B9000 series with wireless connection have leaked, too. None of these two new series were exhibited on IFA 2009, though.<br /><br />The biggest disapointment was that we didn’t get to see B8500 even though it has already been officially announced by Samsung. We searched for an explanation but the best one we could get was that B8500 is launched on the U.S. market initially (like the US press doesn’t cover IFA 2009…).<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsungb8500-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsungb8500-1.jpg" alt="Samsung B8500" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung B8500</i></p><br />Samsung kept completely quiet about the B9000 and said that new models have been postponed until January at CES 2009 in Las Vegas. This sounds plausible as it was the general statement from most TV manufacturers (including Sony). The economic situation is the culprit. <br /><br />So right now Samsung's hottest LED-TVs are still the <a href= target=_blank><b>B6000, B7000 and B8000</b></a> series.<br /><br />If you want to know more about the B8500 and B9000 series check out these articles: <br /><a href= target=_blank><b>Samsung B8500 LED-TV official</b></a> <br /><a href= target=_blank><b>First details on the Samsung 9 (B9000) series</b></a> <br /><br />FlatpanelsHD has already <a href= target=_blank><b>reviewed the B7000 LED-TV series</b></a> and has received the B8000. A test will be online soon. <br /><br />We look forward to Las Vegas in January. FlatpanelsHD will give you all the latest news from CES 2010 in Las Vegas in January 2010 of course.
