Thanks, but that's cruel and unusual punishment for the rest of us Canadians waiting for our VT50's. Future Shop salesperson confirmed this afternoon with Panasonic Canada head of sales that the shipments of 65VT50s to both Future Shop and Visions are delayed to June 4
. No rationale was given, but I suspect Mumps' theory is on the right track. On the other hand, FutureShop.ca still shows the sets available and when speaking to their CS reps they are adamant they have them in the Ontario warehouse. So I ordered one as a test! We'll see. This all makes for a pissy weekend though ................
Update: FutureShop.ca now lists the 65VT50 as a PREORDER with availability JUNE 15. Aaaaaaaaaaak! This is getting worse by the minute (and a clear example the Future Shop has no idea WTF they are doing)! How far is that drive to a Best Buy Magnolia in Buffalo??
