Not doing anything? My definition of "not doing anything" is Pioneer. They are extinct (with respect to TVs). Their chance of introducing a better panel is zero! (FYI- I own a Pio plasma and love it!)
Panasonic is surviving in a tough industry. Not only are they developing new plasma sets, they are growing plasma sales- and taking market share from LCD. An accomplishment considering many (perhaps most) said plasma would die at the hands of LCD. I expect Panny's 2012 plasmas to be better (and bigger) than last years.
Has Panny produced a panel that can top the Kuro? Maybe not- but they have a chance to do so someday, which is a LOT more than Pioneer can say!
