It looks like Hitachi
is continuing to follow the go-big mantra revived by the 1TB 7K1000
, as the firm is reportedly looking to crank out quite a few 85-inch plasma HDTVs over the next few years. Of course, this forthcoming beauty won't take the crown for the largest
PDP out there
, but it could very well achieve the metrics the sales crew is hoping for. Hitachi is looking to hit the 50-inch and over category hard, increasing overall PDP marketshare to 20-percent, and boosting its stake in the aforementioned subset to over 30-percent. Still, the company probably has a fairly good backup plan
if plasma sales continue to sag
, but we reckon a respectably priced behemoth such as this could definitely make up the slack if it's bringing the goods.
