I went to an electronic store in Quebec city, hoping to see a demo of the TC-P55VT50, as I want to compare it to my old 50PZ800. None in store and the dealer told me it was discontinued and for this store, only one left in the entire province.
I find that hard to believe... But I really did not have time to look elsewhere and inquire about the availabily; I thought of buying it in January/February, but if it stocks are so low, I might consider buying one right now.
So, does Panasonic usually stop production 6-8 months before they release their new models? It's in Canada, but I figure all TV for the NA market are made at the same plant.
