Sony launches 3D TV in June

Sony will be releasing a comprehensive range of Bravia 3D TVs in June alongside 3D-enabled products, which will include the PS3 (requires a firmware update).



Tuesday's announcement fills out Sony's 3D launch plans, which began in September last year when it became the first major consumer electronics maker to disclose plans to launch 3D televisions in 2010. It has subsequently been followed by other big names including Panasonic, Samsung and LG.

Rivals Panasonic and Samsung are expected to announce 3D TV availability ahead of Sony.



Sony has high hopes for 3D and expects sales of 3D-compatible sets to be about 2.5 million this year. That represents a 10 percent slice of its total TV sales target.
