Sony gives up on Plasma
Not content with dumping PDAs, Sony’s also decided to give plasma television the boot as well. The company is apparently pulling out of the plasma TV market and concentrating its efforts entirely on LCD TV technology. Companies such as Sharp and Samsung have already massively invested in LCD technology, and Sony has obviously decided that it doesn’t want to be left out, especially as the other companies were starting to get away from it when it came to flat panels.
What this means for the future of Plasma is anyone’s guess. As I4U’s report points out, Plasmas are still being developed and improved upon, but LCD is cheaper – and getting better all the time.
