The brand “Philips” has determined that its new LCD model is so essential and so uniquely well placed that it needs a name rather than a number, named ‘The One.’ Even if we ignore the fact that one is a number, The One is also mentioned in the company’s press materials by product number 7304.
First of all, it’s a rare delight to see a TV manufacturer put some real effort into its mid-range models. Although most rivals begrudgingly launch mid-range sets, Philips is promoting The One heavily on its mainstream credentials despite concentrating all its resources on flagship models.
