Don’t count 3DTVs out yet. Currys and PC World, UK electrical retailers, report that sales in 3DTVs have breached the 40% mark for the first time ever.

The retailer predicts that further sales in 3DTV sets will continue to peak. Earlier this year, the retailer reported sales in 3DTVs alone to have grown 500% since last year, with 3DTVs now accounting for two in every five TVs sold since the technology became more accessible to the mainstream market.

Sales generally within the home cinema technology have risen significantly, with Currys and PC World recording an 83% year-on-year growth in the category. ¬†Hmmm, so will Apple’s rumored HDTV (the iTV?) be offered in a 3D version — if and when it materializes?
