Samsung Claims 3D Victory—Has 88% of US 3D TV Sales

Despite worrying rumblings that we're already seeing the latest 3D trend explode amid consumer apathy for the current things-poking-out-of-the-screen gimmick, Samsung is remaining upbeat—thanks to taking an 88% share of recent US sales of 3D TVs.

Claiming to have shifted one million sets in the space of six months, Samsung says its aggressive early launch plans saw it take that 88.3% share of the US market for 3D TVs between March and July of 2010. Globally, Samsung says it'll sell around 3.4 million 3D sets this year—and the US will account for a massive 66% of global demand for its 3D screens. While the novelty remains. [Samsung]
