The most likely explanation we can think of is that Brazilian buyers know their stuff

This is an interesting yet unexpected remark. Brazilians more tech savoy than Americans? say it ain't so.

Maybe it's just that Brazilians don't fall for the misleading LCD-Hype like the Americans do biggrin.gif

he makes a good point though, they didn't really clarify what the number of plasma sales were. a 200% increase could still have plasma as a small portion of that 3mil TV's ordered.

I do hope that the threat of the end will push some consumers that have been waiting to show their support of plasma by 'buying one while they still can' and show companies there's still a market for them, even if it is small. choice is always better than no choice, and I'd like to be able to choose plasma at least until oled becomes more viable for me.
