Samsung and Sony are celebrating (with their new displays
no doubt) a 1-2 finish in iSuppli's second quarter LCD TV sales report. Vizio's
slipped from the number one spot last year
, to behind Philips, Sharp and LG, respectively, accounting for only 6 percent of the market. According to iSuppli's analysts, major name brands moving aggressively into smaller sizes and budget retailers like Wal-mart
is squeezing the smaller Taiwanese competition out of the picture. Vizio bust onto the scene with extraordinary deals on flat screens, at this point does it become an also-ran as its principal supplier hooks up with the big names
, or (we hope) is there at least one more hurrah coming Black Friday?
