Early 3D TV adoption is quicker than HD was

This is somewhat surprising, but not sure how much can really be read into this. I’m a firm believer in as long as you need to have expensive glasses to watch it, 3D will always be a niche. I think if sales are good on 3D TV’s, it’s because the best TV’s out there just happen to have it integrated (see: Panasonic VT25 Review from @Babgvant).

“The retail performance of 3D hardware for the home has been developing at a healthy pace, bolstered by 3DTV prices falling by close to 40 per cent in some cases, and year one adoption of 3DTV is running at a far quicker rate in most territories than it did for high definition,” claims the new industry report from Futuresource Consulting.

    Statistics at play. I imagine any new TV I bought is going to be 3d capable by default just because I want the other things like Netflix or Google TV to be built in as a standard option.
