Falling flat

If you’re considering buying an LCD TV this Christmas, you might want to get a TiVo now and wait on the bigger screen. Manufacturers have been building factories by the dozen, which means you’ll be paying 30% less by this time next year. Smaller screens (around 20 inches) will probably drop even farther, down to around $300 instead of the $700-$800 you’ll pay now.
Everyone from Philips to Sony to Samsung to Thomson have been putting up new factories to manufacture the wall-mounted screens, anticipating a big demand that has, so far, not materialized. And if the laws of supply and demand continue to be laws, you could be the proud owner of a 50″ flatscreen in time for SuperBowl XL in 2005.
