Gateway Becomes Top US Seller of Plasma TVs

Gateway Inc. has become America’s top seller of plasma screen TVs to consumers, surpassing Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and other traditional industry leaders.

Previously only known as a direct-sales PC seller, they started selling their first thin television,
a 42-inch Enhanced Definition (ED) Plasma TV, last November and by June this year they held a 28 percent market share of major consumer electronics retailers.

They plan to expand their current six thin screens offering, which range from 17 inches through to 50 inches, before the christmas season.
