Posted Tue Apr 27, 2010 at 10:00 AM PDT by Mike Attebery

50 and 54 inch sets will be hitting shelves on May 3rd, but if you want something bigger, you'll have to wait until June.

The release of the VIERA VT25 line of 3D plasmas is only a week away, as long as you don't mind sticking with a 50 or 54 inch set. Panasonic's new TVs will sell for $2,599 and $2,999 respectively. They've got plenty of cool tech built in and they come with a pair of 3D glasses. Each additional pair of glasses runs $149.

"The arrival of our VIERA VT25 Series truly defines the phenomenal capabilities of Panasonic’s Full HD 3D technology," said Henry Hauser, VP of Panasonic Display Group. "Full HD 3D imagery is delivered in stunning realism and clarity to create a truly immersive viewing experience."

Panasonic's larger plasma sets are slated for a June release, though a specific date hasn't yet been given. Just like the sets coming in May, these sets include Skype capability, built in WiFi, and a THX certified picture. The 58inch TC-P58VT25 will run $3,399 while 65 inches runs $4,299.
