Samsung brings back the notion of a TV set -- as opposed to a sleek panel -- with the Serif TV. With a name inspired by the capital letter "I" in serif font, the TV is billed as "solid presence that would sit naturally in any environment, just like a piece of furniture." That's the intention of French designers who Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, who not only designed the Serif but also added "curtain mode" to Samsung's Smart TV interface, which creates a fabric-like filter over the picture while offering access to simple services such as a clock, Bluetooth speakers, apps and a photo gallery. The Serif comes in white, dark blue and red color options, with sizes ranging from 21 to 40 inches. A back cover to hide the mess of cables, along with a set of retro-looking legs, are also included. Expect the Serif to be available in the UK, France, Sweden, and Denmark starting November 2nd.
