IKEA's Uppleva was shown off last month, and now we have some proper pricing, launch dates, and applications that will be built-in. The Uppleva launches next month, and will be available in sizes from 24- to 46-inches, while being priced "around $960", which should go up, as the screen size increases.

The Uppleva sports a built-in Blu-ray player, wireless subwoofer and is being assembled by TCL Multimedia, a manufacturer in China. The unit will rollout in France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Sweden beginning next month, then it will touch down in other European countries later in the year. It will jump the pond to the US sometime in 2013.

Uppleva will come with a bunch of applications, depending on your region, these include Dailymotion, Vimeo and YouTube, as well as games, music playback and video-on-demand apps, as well as the Opera for TV web browser.
