I know that I’ve been thinking about the 2008 Panasonic TH-50PZ800U,  yet mentally salivating over the Panasonic VIERA TC-P50G10 (I blogged about the soon-to-be-released G10 series back on Jan 23rd), but the step-up V10 series looks even better.  The V10 is scheduled to be on sale in June 2009, but there’s no word on pricing as yet.  Still the features look pretty nice.

The VIERA V10 series are slim, 2-inch thin plasma HDTVs with built-in tuners. The V10 series offer such cutting edge innovations as Digital Cinema Color(TM) which helps to deliver all movie-essential colors, full THX Display certification, and the VIERA CAST web menu with Amazon Video on Demand services.

Who am I kidding?  I already called up Comcast to inquire about HDTV pricing.  With the added costs of a Comcast DVR, upgraded services (for the HD channels), and our high-speed Internet, it’s going to bump our monthly bill up another $50.

One day, but not today.  I will continue to dream in digital.
