Philips will be releasing two intermediate models of the 9000 series: 40PFL9715 and 46PFL9715.

As far as I know the new 9000 series (xxPFL9xx6x/xx) are planned for autumn 2011. These two models should fill the gap between the 2010 and 2011 release.

Also they should have some features from the 2011 series. Also the new remote control.

Interesting is, that the Product Spread Sheet states a "Now + Next EPG" as feature!
