Samsung says glasses-free 3D years away from relevance

The head of Samsung's display unit is telling consumers not to get too affixed to this growing idea of glasses-free 3D TV sets, because it won't really take off until at least 2015. So go ahead and buy a Samsung 3D TV that requires 3D glasses (preferably one from Samsung), okay?

"I believe that [glasses-free 3D technology] will be possible on cell phones and other mobile devices, or monitors that require smaller displays...but supplying 3D TV without glasses will not be (available) in the next five to ten years," said Samsung Electronics BK Yoon, the president of its display division

So they want us to buy a 3D shutter glass display now, and then buy a glassless 3D display 38 months later? J6P doesn't buy a new tv every 3 years.

Where do you get 38 months from . Samasung head says 5-10 yrs that is 60 to 120 mos. and a new tv in (lets take the middle of that) 7 1/2 yrs as a replacement for current tech seems reasonable to me.

First paragraph:

I guess the article is conflicting.

2015 is 5 yrs by my count since this is 2010 but I think we both agree that 3 1/2 yrs is too soon a turnover time and also that stereoscopic displays are a good ways off. Also since the delivery format doesn't need to change those who buy now aren't ever SOL.

Sorry, brain fart. I've been doing a lot of scheduling the last few day for 2012, and I guess I had 2012 on my brain.

J6P doesn't - what about early adopters?

The money is with J6P, not early adopters, which is why mass adoption is to critical to the lifespan of the product.

Mass adoption doesn't happen until years after a new product is introduced.

That is exactly right.
