Pioneer to launch new HD plasma Pioneer Corp. has announced plans to launch a new high definition plasma TV this summer. The company has described it as being the most advanced plasma high definition television. It promises richer colors, deeper shades of black and better contrast than predecessors. Pioneer will launch the product this summer to compete with products from Samsung, LG Electronics and Hitachi.
"We have to find our own balance and not simply follow the competition," Katsunobu Shioda, general manager of Pioneer's home entertainment business group, told Reuters at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Pioneer admitted that the new product will cost more than its predecessors but claims the quality will make up for it.

Pricing information and what sizes the new display will be available in will be announced in May.

Probably as much as a small car :) I like pioneer and what i like about this is the fact that they bring the new stuff out which means the stuff they have out now will come down and i can be able to afford it sooner that later :)

I still think LCDs & Plasma's should be a third cheaper now than what they are at the moment. You can actually get a decent 1080i Plasma for 2K so why are the 720 ranges not much cheaper? Although Pioneer are a top make, the Phillips TVs are better picture quality & sharper in comparison. But in the end it all comes down to the price & how many HDMI ports is has to connect all your gear - especially for either the Xbox360/PS3.
