Yahoo carries a Reuters story about Sony not being able to meet demand of growing Flat Panel TV sales.

Sale numbers in Europe indicate that Sony is closing in on Flat Panel TV market leader Philips. Sony had end of September 15.8%, where as Philips has 18.8%. Apparently Sony did not increase production in their plants fast enough. Seems consumers are really getting hooked on Flat Screens. It is also too tempting. When shopping for a TV, those CRTs or Projection TVs are just huge, compared to a slim Flat Screen TV.

Another interesting bit from the Reuters story is that a key component in flat screens, indium-tin-oxide (ITO), which is pasted on the glass has the highest price since 1939.
