Not to be outdone by Samsung , Panasonic has also announced full pricing and availability for its 2012 line of Blu-ray players. Panasonic's quoted prices are "suggested retail pricing," so expect these players to be a little cheaper when they hit the streets.

Panasonic's 2012 Blu-ray line
Panasonic DMP-BD77: $90
Panasonic DMP-BD87: $120
Panasonic DMP-BDT220 : $150
Panasonic DMP-BDT320: $200
Panasonic DMP-BBT01: $270
Panasonic DMP-BDT500: $350

All of Panasonic Blu-ray players are available now, except the higher-end DMP-BDT500 and DMP-BBT01, which will be released in May.

Panasonic released most of the information about these players back at CES 2012, where we broke down the most important features . In the latest release, Panasonic does specify that the DMP-BDT500 will includes 7.1 analog outputs, which would explain its price premium.
