I'm hoping that it might even go lower, but at any rate I will be getting one in September. I'm not sure when the new 2013 models drop and how much/how quickly that impacts pricing.
. Panasonic in a joint venture with Sony will have OLEDs in production for 2013 . . . But will contine making,plasmas for a number years until the pricey OLEDS catch on with consumers. Generally, Panasonic spools down production at the end of the calendar year or the first of.the new year, shows new models at,CEMA in January, and starts delivery of new plasmas end of March or so. What you are looking at is probably a labor day sale or Black Friday, or December Christmas sale if to go any lower. But, keep watch, about any weekend,,someone with overstock may go lower for a,few days. hDTV sales across the board have been lower this year. Just keep watch on this thread a couple of weeks before you are ready to buy.
