Sony Ditches RPTV

Following Hitachi and Seiko (Seiko makes TVs?), Sony has announced that they are no longer in the Rear Projection TV business.

Stealing market share from rear-projection TV sales is liquid-crystal-display TVs which are making big and bulky rear-projection TVs look downright antiquated. Sony says rear-projection TV sales plummet[ed] by 50 percent in 2007 compared to 2006. Growing 50 percent in sales, within roughly the same time period are sales of LCD TVs, Sony reports. Sony says it will stop production of rear-projection TVs in February.

Eliminating rear-projection production and sales could have a significant impact on future Sony products. Sony has openly said that it will be putting focus on the existing LCD and plasma technology, as well as looking towards the future, which is OLED displays .

That's too bad... I was actually considering buying one of their SXRD units as our next HD set.  That leaves Samsung DLP and JVC D-ILA on the list.
