Samsung TV model sells a million!

February 6th, 2006 · No Comments

The Korean giant Samsung is stomping all over its CE competition. The brand recently announced sales of over 10 million units of its SGH-E700 clamshell and SDH-D 500 slider camera phones. Now the company also has a million-unit-selling digital TV in its portfolio.
Its “V”-shaped LCD TV series broke the million mark in sales on January 31, one year after the product went into mass production in February 2005.
The ā€œVā€ series is so-called because the bottom half of the TVs gently slope to form the letter, with the speakers incorporated as part of the motif, (confusingly this range has also been dubbed the Rome series.) Given that the global market for LCD TVs is thought to have exceeded 19.6 million units in 2005 (according to iSuppli), this means that one in out of every 20 units sold worldwide one was a Samsung Rome series telly.
Sangheung Shin, senior vice president of the Visual Display Sales & Marketing Team at Samsung Electronics, stated, “In the future, design will be an important factor in determining the winners and losers in the flat screen TV market. Samsung Electronics will continue to apply a design differentiation strategy to LCD TVs as well as plasma TVs and DLP TVs to create more ‘million seller’ models.”
