What?!? Samsung is cutting back on their CRTs
? Does this surprise anyone though, really? CRTs, while they are great technology, must see the writing on the walls. Their days are numbered. Samsung is expecting that by 2010, CRTs are only going to make up 13% of the companies annual sales instead of todays 39%. That 39% was reached after a steady decline from 78% in 2000. You may recall though, Samsung does have a niche CRT market cornered with their slim CRT line
. These tube TVs take up 1/3 less room then normal sets by reducing the 'junk in the trunk.' Samsung doesn't foresee this part of their business from decline but these sets are just small part of their overall sales.
