Here's a surprise, 3DTV sales aren't booming

Despite the best efforts of consumer electronics manufacturers, content providers and even some service providers, 3DTV is not rocketing into the sales stratosphere, according to research from DisplaySearch.

It could be the need for silly glasses, the price of sets in a depressed worldwide economy, or just the fact that enough people have just purchased HDTVs and are not in the market for new sets. Whatever the reason, the researchers are disappointed that sales didn't reach their own prediction of 3.4 million worldwide units, falling short by about 200,000 sets. In North America the situation is even worse: Predictions were 2 million, reality is around 1.6 million.
