At this point, no consumer displays currently can even display Deep Color, and they ALSO are only saying that the HDMI connection can handle it which means that the HDMI version is 1.3.

Again at this point it is just marketing BS and IMO, VERY misleading to not state that it is only the connection that can handle it, but the receiving device itself cannot do anything with a Deep Color source if one existed.
Amen. I wonder if there are even any plans to have Deep Color HDTVs produced in the near future?
