Sorry, China's 3D TVs are no less expensive

Incoming, Chinese 3D TVs! A couple of Chinese manufacturers have announced details of their very own 3D TVs. There’s really nothing too crazy, so I don’t even know why I’m mentioning it. Oh, yes: trying to avoid talking about that… thing.

Unfortunately, these TVs aren’t any cheaper than the 3D TVs already available. I had expected China to invent some super hi-tech, low cost method to produce the TVs. Sad face.

The companies are Skyworth, Changhon, and Hisense. Sizes are about what you’d expect, in the 40-to-60-inch range, and prices are about what you’d expect, too: 55-inchers coming in at around $3,000.

Essentially a non-story, yes.

Look, if it were up to me, I’d sit here and talk about UFC and soccer all day long, all in an effort to bring some balance to iPadMania. Not everybody is losing their mind over its release.
