LAS VEGAS -- Panasonic, part of the Japanese electronics parent company Matsushita Electric ( MC), has just introduced a very big plasma TV.How big, you might ask? How about 150 inches, measured diagonally! That's 12½ feet. Panasonic says it's the biggest plasma TV in the world.

- The TV boasts four times the resolution of a full, high-definition 1080p monitor.
- I was told it weighs somewhere between 1,500 and 1,800 pounds. (Please, don't try installing one all by yourself.)
- Panasonic believes that it will be best used for billboards and displays.
- No price has been set for the jumbo screen set.
- If you're interested, it should be available in 2009.
