Depends on how much inventory they have. If there isn't much, then there isn't a reason to drop prices heavily.
Just clear out inventory, and close up shop. Why sell at super-low prices if you're ceasing production anyway.
and Samsung hasn't dropped pricing on their competing models to compete with the Panasonic's price drop....
This is the only time I can ever remember where the competing Samsung model is actually more $$ than the Panasonic
there has always been a 5-10% difference in their market pricing, over the years
