3D TVs more popular than expected, analysts surprised

Turns out that initial estimates on the number of 3D TVs to be sold this year were a little conservative. Revised estimates put the numbers as high as 2.5 million units this year, despite a lack of content and other channel issues.

Not surprisingly, half of these orders are expected to come from the US. It’s also interesting to note that 3D television will predominately come in sizes 40 inches and larger. Manufacturers are still having problems getting the televisions to the marketplace, as the technology needed to build the new products is still quite expensive. Analysts also expect that the majority of new televisions 40-inches or larger will be 3D ready.
