WOW. Street price in Canada could reach $4k. This could start the end for RP.

The end started a couple of years ago. This is more of a last nail in the coffin type deal.

Get rid of the motorized swiveling stand and make it even more affordable. No mention of the horizontal resolution. Suppose it goes up to 1920?

I don't know if I agree that RP's are on the way out. DLP and LCOS are pretty decent technologies that are becoming extremely cheap. I think they'll be around for a long time to come as a cheap alternative to flat panel.

Also, personally I'm more interested in LCDs... Now that 50' LCD flat panels are a reality, I'm hoping 60' to 70' are on the way (that would be my next upgrade)
