Customers all over the world prefer portable media since they expect privacy. Also, for video gamers who need visual reality switch to small size head mounted displays. It will also be successful in the field of education if the cost of these displays are brought down.
When times get tough one of the first things to be cut is new toys, and large screen televisions certainly are expensive toys. So part of the slump in sales is not by any means the fault of the product. Of course, the 3D gimmick is another story. It has been some time since a product was marketed that offered so little value for the big price. Hopefully the public will understand that 3D is a stupid waste of energy and resources and is primarily an attempt to create another market without delivering any value. The best outcome would be for the promotors to lose both shirts and shorts, and possibly learn that the consumers as a whole are not quite that stupid.
Good to know Adeniji, I have tried to collect some infos about and in effect as American Optometric Association has reported, it is quite difficult a deterministic correlation between screens and human health. As reverse face of the coin, we would say we still can't exclude that possible dangers could come.
smaller screens does basically everything a large screen can do plus so much more
@Damilare, I dont think small screen can do everything that a large screen can do because you cannot display large amount of data on a smaller screen. It would be very difficult for the readers to read small text/image. People still prefer bigger monitors/Television for entertainment purposes.
@Damilare, well, but this is not applicable to LCD TVs and Monitors. They are in the class of themselves and people are still buying them and dropping the old and faithful CRT TVs. I feel they the big screen and the small one perform the same task but different area of use so what I expect is a level -up in the use of the two screens.
personally I think little screens will continue grow more than the larger screens. For reasons such as price, portability and a multipurpose nature, smaller screens does basically everything a large screen can do plus so much more

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
