I’ve received a significant amount of visitors to this blog looking for details, especially pricing on the new line of 2009 plasma TVs that Panasonic has announced. I don’t believe Panasonic has released the MSRP for any of the models. That hasn’t stopped one Japanese web site from speculating what the prices might be. Keep in mind, this is only their guess, which has nothing to do with Panasonic officially:
“The new TVs are scheduled to be released in series from March 1, 2009. Though there are no manufacturer’s suggested retail prices, the expected market prices of the Z Series are about ¥700,000 (approx US$7,824) for the 54-inch model, about ¥600,000 for 50-inch and about ¥550,000 for 46-inch.
The expected prices of the V Series are about ¥400,000 for the 50-inch model, about ¥370,000 for 46-inch, about ¥300,000 for 42-inch, about ¥220,000 for 37-inch and about ¥200,000 for 32-inch.
The expected prices of the G Series are about ¥350,000 for the 50-inch model, about ¥300,000 for 46-inch, about ¥250,000 for 42-inch, about ¥200,000 for 37-inch and about ¥140,000 for 32-inch.”
