According to Korean outlet 47News, an LG VP has indicated that the company, barring any drastic change in sales or costs, might just stop producing plasma TVs. UPDATE:

They wouldn't be the first by any stretch—Pioneer and Vizio have both recently clenched the sphincter on plasma production, citing low profitability. If razor-thin profit margins are the concern, though, LG's next move—to produce CRT displays for the developing world, according to the article—seems an odd choice. UPDATE: For what it's worth (a lot?), LG has denied the report. [47News via Crunchgear]
