iPad Compared To Large LCD TV

Way back in 1954, and RCA television with a 12 inch screen would run you $1,000, nearly 50 years later Samsung offered a 40-inch LCD television for around $8,000. Televisions here in the U.S. are expected to fall 10% to under $600 this quarter, and likely slip to under $580 by the end of the year.

Comparing the under 10" LCD display of the iPad 2 to a 40+ inch television seems a little absurd. Maybe it doesn't cost much more to produce a 42" display as compared to the iPad 2 touchscreen display. 3-D and other display features have kept the premium brand of televisions over a couple thousands dollars here in the U.S. though.
