Flat Panels Predicted to Outsell CRTs

CNet News.com reports, "[f]or the first time, global shipments of liquid crystal displays in 2004 will surpass those of cathode ray tube (CRT) units, market research firm IDC said Thurday."

It chalks the result up to the abundance of flat panels, which has in turn driven prices down to be more affordable for mainstream users. "By sometime next year, 17-inch LCDs will dominate the market, according to IDC. "
