I sent an email to Panny CS yesterday and have been checking my email constantly since then (Android FTW). UPS man just came and much to my surprise, it was NOT her Barnes & Noble stuff! Oh how I wish I had an HDMI on my work computer monitors. Or at least a DVI->HDMI adapter . . .
FWIW I ordered Friday morning. I live in Des Moines, IA and the box says Panasonic North America, Aurora, IL.
