No news is not good news as for the release of these models ....
To me it seems that BB/Magnolia is/was making room for the 80" 844's rather than the Vaporware 80" Elite ... No news on a V2 of the Elite 2013's as well , the current Elites are called 2012's IIRC ..
They are people sitting on the fence waiting for a 70" 945 with Local Dimming .
Hopefully we will see some sorta news coming soon from Sharp on these issues , but don't hold your breath .
You would think Sharp would release some info on where they are going with a premiere product like the 945's were reported to become .
