Connected TVs to outsell games consoles for first time this year

A new report from Informa Telecoms & Media (publisher of IPTV News) reveals that worldwide sales of connected TVs will surpass games consoles for the first time in 2011.

Samsung Claims 60 Percent of 3D Market

Samsung said last week that it has crossed the 60 percent mark in domestic market share for 3D TVs. The company cited data from NPD Group's tracking survey measuring late April and early May. Clearly consumers are voting with their wallets and choosing the TV that provides a superior 3D experience," John Revie, senior vice president of Home Entertainment, Samsung Electronics America, Inc, said as part of the announcement. "Samsung 3D TVs can deliver Full HD 3D, but a TV isn't just about 3D. We also are leaders in design with our gorgeous TVs, and leaders in connected TV with our hugely popular Samsung Apps platform." The Samsung reaction comes as LG had been claiming publicly that customers prefer its passive-glasses Theater 3D approach.

One of those moments may arrive next year with a high-speed wireless technology that could let people link tablets with big-screen TVs or dock laptops when arriving in the office.

A group called the WiGig Alliance is developing it, and the group announced today new specifications that could help replace the current tangle of cables.
