Lower Prices on Electronics This Year?

alt text

(Best Syndication News) Despite the destruction of factories in Japan and the slowdown of production from the March 11th earthquake, some forecasters believe the price of some electronics products may still be declining this year.

Over the last few years the price of electronics has been falling. Computers, tablets, Blu-Ray players and mobile phones have all been declining. The popular monthly magazine, Readers Digest, published historic “low prices” for these popular items. The magazine also made predictions for this year.

HDTV Prices

In 2009 the lowest price found for a 55-inch LCD HDTV was $1,115. Last year the lowest price was found at Walmart. The Element 55-inch LCD HDTV was $699. This year the price could go as low as $599.

The historic prices are the “lowest” prices found that year.

Blu-Ray Players

There a numerous Blu-Ray players available. Many of these players have built in Netflix and Amazon movies (subscription required for Netflix).

In 2009 the lowest price was $76. Last year the Samsung BD-C5500 was found for $50. This year the lowest Blue Ray players could be $39. These models will likely not include built-in WiFi or may not even be Wi-Fi ready.

Kindle eBook Reader

In 2009 the lowest price Kindle was $259. Last year the Kindle 3G plus WiFi from soongo.com was $130. The consensus is that the price could hit $99 this year.

Apple iPhone

In 2009 the lowest price found for the Apple iPhone 3GS was $199. Last year the “lowest” price was $97 at Wal-Mart (iPhone 3GS). Could the price drop to $49? The report says that the price drop is already here; At least for the 8GB 3GS phone. They say don’t expect the sale to last very long.

A report from Global SMT says the supply line is still being assessed. The Japanese earthquake has slowed the production of cars and electronics. The price of these products will also depend on the global economic recovery.

Many of the low prices are available as Thanksgiving door-busters sales, so we have a while before we find out how the predictions pan-out.
