Update on Pioneers new G9 panels for 2008...
« on: 20 March 2008, 02:45:26 PM »

Hi all, this is my first outing on this forum site but hopefully the information I have will provide useful to some...

I attended a Pioneer event at my local Hughes Electrical store, (Ipswich, Suffolk) last evening and had an interesting chat with the pioneer sales rep. He confirmed to me that the new 9th generation Pioneer panels will be officially announced in May and that the 50" and 60" panels will be available in-stores from July. He also confirmed that there will be no 42" panels available this year but that there would be a newer 44" plasma panel available after August.

For those interested in the Pioneer/Sharp venture into LCD screens, no specifics were available other than an expected availability sometime in October of this year.
