It’s something of a year of change for Sony Bravia. Yes, new TVs, but amongst the range are two notable new directions. One is Sony’s strong use of design – Sony Monolithic Design – in the NX Series.
The second, and probably ‘noisiest’ new direction, is Sony’s first 3DTV. And 3DTV is going to be spoken about a lot this year. This football World Cup year. Events like the World Cup and the Olympics drive strong TV sales every time, and with some games in the World Cup being shot and shown in 3D, it will be interesting to see how strongly this new TV format goes.
So, here’s an overview of the Sony Bravia 2010 LCD TV range.
