Panasonic VT25 priced
Panasonicâ€™s flagship VT25 (VT20 in Europe) is the first 3D-Tv from Panasonic and will arrive in 50, 54, 58 and 65 inches in the US. In Europe folks have to settle with just the 50 and 65 inch models, though.
The VT25 range has now been priced and dated. See the overview below.
50-inch TC-P50VT25: $2,599.95 54-inch TC-P54VT25: $2,999.95 Available from May 3, 2010.
58-inch TC-P58VT25: $3,399.95 65-inch TC-P65VT25: $4,299.95 Available from June 2010.
Panasonic also said that they have ramped up production of their 3D plasma panels by 30 % because of stronger-than-expected demand and pre-orders.
- "We've had a very strong reaction," says Hirotoshi Uehara from Panasonic. -"Our plasma panel factory is at full capacity but we've increased 3D panel production by 30 per cent compared to our original plan."
This also indicates an actual and stron consumer interest in 3D, although some remain sceptical. Samsung, Sony, LG, Philips and Sharp also have 3DTVs planned for launch.
Hopefully this will help to reduce prices in a month or two. FlatpanelsHD will soon receive the VT20/VT25. Expect a review soon or join our Newsletter to receive an e-mail when the review is online.
