Panasonic Readying First 42-inch 1080p Plasma
Panasonic officially announced Wednesday that its long-awaited new plasma HDTV -the first-ever such set to boast a 1080p 42-inch screen- will become available in early July.
The TH-42PZ700U, part of Panasonic’s 700 series of plasma flat-panels, will come to market with a suggested retail price of $2499.95. The 700 series also includes plasmas in the 50-, 58-, 65- and 103-inch denominations.
Those who purchase the set, as with all other Panasonic plasma TVs, will gain membership to the Plasma Concierge customer-support service.
