Why SED Isn't Appearing at CES 2007

After Toshiba dropped their SED displays for CES '07, most of us were wondering whether SED was going to be super-delayed or just vaporware. Toshiba's president, however, sheds some light on why they've bumped the upcoming technology from CES.

Atsutoshi Nishida says SED is planned for a fall 2007 release, but only in small numbers and focused at "professional users". This means it's going to be a "limited, pricey, high-end product", which isn't "competitive against the LCD TV". To us, that says it's going to be a couple years before SED drops to be competitive in a price to performance ratio to match LCDs and plasmas. Time to put our SED dreams in the same place we put our dreams of canoodling with Catherine Zeta Jones.
