    Does anyone know if Sony will be coming out with a new 40" Wega? The retailers in my area have dropped the price to $2500, but don't know if the drop is due to an impending model. I've tried to contact Sony themselves, but they don't know anything about new models....

    Are they going to make one similar in size that is a 16x9 screen? I have the 40-inch Mitsubishi now and it looks like it's going to last longer than I thought it would, but I still want to get a 16x9 as soon as I can afford one. The only problem is, I don't want a smaller widescreen picture than what I get now, and I'd like one at least slightly bigger if possible even if it gives me a smaller 4x3 picture. If I got the Wega I'd just be getting the same size with better resolution, and I think I can hold out for something a little better.
