Samsung predicts types of TVs sold for 2012

At the IFA Global Press Conference, Samsung went on record to show its predictions for the sales of TV with particular type of technology built-in throughout 2012. The maker estimated that only about 30 percent of all TVs sold by the industry in 2012 will have 3D capabilities built-in, while web-connected TVs will account for about 60 percent. The two features weren't mutually exclusive, but it did suggest Internet access was a more universal feature.

The percentages are based on Samsung's estimate of 60 million TVs that will be sold in 2012. Philips has similar feelings about connected TVs, stating in the past that about 60 percent of all of its smart TVs going online daily. The most popular features include catching up on streamed TV shows, accessing Video-on-Demand content, and social networking.

The higher price of 3D sets along with limited content are seen as the largest stumbling blocks to greater 3D TV adoption. Battery-powered active shutter glasses are especially costly, while passive glasses don't produce the same 3D effect. [via SlashGear]
