Bravia line helps to boost Sony's sales

Sony grabbed 14.6% of the LCD TV market in the fourth quarter of 2005 vaulting into first place in global shipments. Sony's strong performance knocked Sharp from the top position that it had held since the second quarter of 2001. Sharp was relegated to third place while Royal Philips Electronics took over the second place spot.

The research firm attributed Sony's increase in market share to the successful launch of its new BRAVIA series and optimized panel capacity through its LCD joint venture with South Korea's Samsung Electronics.

For those of you who may have forgotten, Sony's Bravia LCD TVs have been in the news in recent weeks -- and the news wasn't so good for owners.

But according to this, Samsung is giving them a hand.

Samsung was number one, I don't see why they'd be helping number 2.

Read Forbes. Samsung CEO explains quite well his idea of cooperation to boost two companies, as opposed to two companies competing and sinking each other.

But Sony wasn't even competitive until they teamed up with Samsung. A definite mistake by Samsung.

Sony was still pushing Trinitron when everyone else had already switched to LCD. They had fallen behind Sharp, Hitachi, and of course Samsung in the LCD market.
