Web enabled TVs prove bigger for manufacturers than 3D in 2010


Internet-connected TVs are proving bigger this year for manufacturers than the much vaunted 3D technology. Nearly 28m TV sets with built-in internet connectivity are expected to ship over 2010, according to the iSuppli research firm, compared with just 4m 3D TVs. This would be a rise of 125 per cent on the 12m units shipped in 2009. TV makers are rushing to offer web services and content such as movies, music and photos, with iSuppli expecting that by 2014, 54 per cent of flat-panel TVs shipped - about 148m units - will have internet connectivity and services. The figures imply that TV makers will hold a majority share of the smart TV market in the coming years, with their relationship with consumers altering as they move to provide content as well as services. That would require new partnerships with content providers and perhaps a radical change in business model.

The web apps that are built into today's sets are much more functional than 3D at this point. It makes sense.

yeah, web enabled tvs have a stable tecnology, while 3d is in its infant year so to speak, we'll see next year how the sales of the 3d tv rise or plunge.

God bless!!!

Without DLNA/UPnP or NFS streaming off a home media fileserver, it's a waste of time IMO..

Honestly, 3D TV sales aren't a telling statistic. Glasses sales determine if people are using 3D. Those obviously aren't doing that well, otherwise the 3D brigade would shout those numbers from the rooftops.
