Sony quitting the rear projection business

It saddens me to say that Sony has actually ceased production of all rear-projection TVs. I mean it was inevitable that they were going to move on, but they were one of the best manufacturers of rear-projection displays.

Oh well, if you want one they aren't recalling the back stock, they are going to let that stuff sell out, but they are moving their rear-projection business out of the way to make room for expansion in their LCD business. This move is largely due to a report from NPD showing that LCD is the way to go.

Well, that and the fact that all of Sony's competitors are refocusing their efforts on LCD. Heck, even Panasonic gave up their beloved plasma technology in order to change over to LCD.
