Panasonic sells out first batch of 3D HDTVs

On Mar. 10 Panasonic put a 50-inch plasma 3D HDTV package on shelves in New York City that included a 3-D Blu-ray player and one pair of RealD shutter glasses. The Panasonic model TC-P50VT20, sold exclusively at Best Buy, sold out within a week. Apparently the big $2,900 sticker (extra glasses $150 bucks each) didn’t stop early adopters from being the first to own the TVs, and those in New York will be set up to watch the first hockey game in 3D on Mar. 24. Panasonic hasn’t revealed exactly how many 3D units have sold, but they are currently taking back-orders from retailers.
