Now in 2012 still no Samsung 7 or 8 with matte screen

The above answer is unfortunately the common plasma-answer - the subject is highly subjective of cause, but still I personally prefer a steady and clear picture without annoying reflections, which do have significant impact on the picture quality. Whats the point of having a minimal improvement in picture quality if you cant see half the picture because of reflections - how can reflections add to picture quality ?
Now we are in 2012, and look at getting a 40UE7020, but my concern is the reflections. We have an 4 year old 32" Philips with true matte screen, which I enjoy every day thinking of the terrible plasma ( in terms of reflections ) we had before.
Trying to Google "matte screen", I get a Samsung which looks fine, but without Skype, camera and web browser. So what to do ? Wait another year ? In the notebook market it seems like manufacturers finally are getting the point, beginning to make notebooks with matte screen again. Now we wait for the LCD TV manufacturers to also have common sense and go back to true matte screen - at least have a mid-range ( 7 ) series with true matte screen.
Before I leave, still undecided, the 7 and 8 series of Samsung LCD TVs are absolutely perfect and stunning in design - except for the new 8000 stand, how do you turn the TV ? Also the on-lamp is missing on the camera.
Optimal TV would be a 2012 Samsung 7 or 8 series in 21:9 - do Samsung have any plans of a 50" 21:9 LCD TV ?
