Picture Tubes Are Fading Into the Past

It’s official: the CRT TV market is dead, or at least in terminal decline. Falling flatscreen prices and fashion are the reasons for its demise. According to Mike Vitelli, senior vice president at leading US retailer Best Buy “for the first time in history, women care about the TV that comes in the house. Men are not just getting permission to buy a flat-screen TV, they’re getting directed to do so.”
According to this report in the New York Times (click link above), Sony plans on offering only two tubed TVs to US consumers in 2007 and Panasonic is pulling out of the business entirely.
