Sony LCD TV sales fall short in 2008, Panasonic not far behind

Steven Kim

Tough times are here, for sure, and the latest company to come clean with disappointing sales figures is none other than Sony, with the target of 16-million units looking like it's going to be "tough to reach," according to the company's president. Coming after news of Samsung widening its lead over Sony in US TV sales, this is some salt in the wound, but let's be honest here -- Sony isn't alone in missing sales targets this year. For example, Panasonic also looks like it will fall short of its projected 11-million mark for all types of flat panel TVs for the year ending in March. Misery loves company, indeed.
