also predicts that larger-size LCD TVs, up to 65-inch models,
will have even sharper drops in production costs at almost a 20%
The research firm predicts that by the fourth quarter of 2010,
52-inch full HD TV production costs will be less than $1,000.

limited 6G capacity.
This rapid decline in manufacturing costs will likely translate
into an even more rapid retail price drop for flat panel TVs.
