Best Buy leads the way toward 3D televisions

Interesting recent RetailWire panel discussion about whether Best Buy ought to be the leader in 3D televisions. Absolutely, I say:
The 17% survey result (that 3D sets will be widespread in the next five years) is probably a low number compared to what will really happen. Time and time again, there is a back-and-forth between the spreading of new technology and lower prices to consumers…as this happens, new technology invariably reaches mass appeal. Look at the popularity of blu-ray players…and, for that matter, large-screen TV’s as an overall category.
That being said, it’s vitally important for the category leader in consumer electronics retail (Best Buy) to establish a beachhead in 3D televisions. Credibility among “early adapters” is a must for Best Buy, and the long-term commercial potential for 3D sets is significant (even if it reaches “only” 17%).
