Everyone knows that flat-panel TVs are the way of the future and Sony
is expanding their manufacturing capabilities in Europe
. Many consumers are under the impression that all things electronic is built in some Asian facility but in fact, a good amount of flat panels come from Europe. Sony's latest plant just opened in Nitra, Slovakia and should pump out three million high-end Bravia
LCD TVs each year. The best news is that as manufacturers such as Sony expands their production base, the overall cost of these sets should decrease more rapidly resulting in more flat-panels for everyone.
