Technology giant Samsung has revealed at an event in Monaco today that it now sells three television sets every second.
Let that sink in for a moment. Three television sets. Every second. That works out at 180 per minute, 10,800 per hour, 259,200 per day or, roughly, 7.78 million every month.
The staggering figure was uttered by the company's president, BK Yoon, at the Samsung EU Forum (specifically the home appliances press conference) in Monte Carlo, and picked up by a reporter from TechRadar.
"Three Samsung TVs are sold every second," said Yoon....
Twenty-two percent of HDTV owners in the U.S. purchased their sets in order to watch the Super Bowl, according to the Consumer Electronics Association's Sports and Technology Study.
