As if there was any doubt Sony’s (SNE) giant 84-inch 4K resolution LED TV would be expensive, Sony has finally priced its upcoming XBR-84X900 TV. The flat screen with a whopping 3840 x 2160-pixel resolution and integrated speakers will sell for $24,999. While Sony will start taking preorders for the TV beginning Thursday, September 6th, it won’t actually be available until November. Early adopters can find demo units at select Sony stores before deciding if 4K is worth the investment. Beyond the TV’s ability to scale 1080p content to 4K resolution, the XBR-84X900 also has SimulView (two-player gaming without split screens), full 3D with passive 3D glasses and large library of apps, videos and music services expected from a high-end HDTV.
