Smart tellies doing ok

Despite the bad press
While everyone is wading into Smart TV's claiming that they are not doing very well, Samsung begs to differ. According to a statement from the company 15 Samsung Smart TVs are being sold every minute, which is 25,000 units in every day.

The Korean electronics company celebrated its two millionth Smart TV sale on June 15, just three months after releasing its brand of internet-connected, app-centric, media-streaming TV technology. Of those figures 730,000 units have been sold only in North America, the largest TV market in the world, followed by 710,000 units in Europe including advanced markets like the UK, Germany, France.

In regions like Middle East, Africa, South-East Asia, where Samsung Smart TV was introduced later, 170,000 units have been sold so far. Figures from NPD Group, claim that Samsung is the top-selling TV brand in the US with a 24.9 percent market share in the total flat-panel TV market.

In April, market researcher DisplaySearch predicted that Smart TV shipments will exceed 123 million units by 2014. It looks like the prediction is going to be closer than that of doom watchers who said that Internet tellies would be a big yawn.
