You may be hearing a lot about expensive 3-D televisions. However, consumers are far more interested in buying TVs with built-in Internet capabilities, according to a report today from tech researcher iSuppli.
“Despite aggressive promotions from the industry and intense consumer interest generated by the blockbuster ‘Avatar’ and other titles, the 3-D TV market in 2010 will be limited to a small pool of enthusiastic early adopters,” Riddhi Patel, iSuppli’s director and principal analyst for television
According to iSuppli’s estimates, manufacturers will ship 4.2 million 3-D televisions this year. By contrast, they’ll ship 27.7 million Internet-enabled TVs, a volume that’s up nearly 125 percent from 2009.
