Sony Takes Logitech’s Cue and Reduces Prices of Its HDTVs Powered by Google TV

In a not too surprising move, Sony has decided to reduce their Sony Internet TV models by up to $440. Folks can now purchase the 24-inch model for $295, the 32-inch for $498, the 40-inch for $723, and the 46-inch for $961 (originally $1,399.99) at Amazon with free shipping. According to StreamingMediaBlog.com, who spoke with a Sony rep., the price reduction is not being done to make room for a product refresh, but to help grab a greater share of the market. Sound familiar? It’s pretty much the same excuse Logitech gave for reducing the Logitech Revue from $249 to $99.

    They’ve been at that clearance price for a long time, I’d wonder what Sony rep they talked to.

    I think you might be right. I couldn’t find an official press release regarding the price reduction. Also, the price points are nearly identical to the ones at Best Buy currently:

    On the topic of Best Buy… I remember the TV sales guy telling me that one of the reasons these TVs have had a hard time selling is because they only provide a screen refresh rate of 60Hz (that’s pretty much bottom end).
