Yesterday, on board the USS Intrepid Museum, Samsung announced its entry into the giant screen HDTV category with its 2012 UN75ES9000, the industry’s first 75-Inch LED LCD screen. Samsung adds new top-of-the-line-features to this flagship model. The UN75ES9000 is also the most expensive 2012 TV Samsung offers to date, with a retail price of $9999.

Samsung revealed the UN75ES9000 will be available to consumers next month. Samsung also announced a free “Angry Birds” game app for all of its 7500 series and up LEDs and 8000 series plasmas will become available at the end of the month.

At the end the event, Samsung disclosed app developers can now receive its latest software development kit (SDK) to permit the integration of gesture, camera and voice control into future 3rd party applications.
