I doubt that, it's more likely that because there's.. what, one plasma panel mfg still in business, it's just consolidation.

Near as I can determine there was only one 42" plasma model that was 1080p native that came out in 2012.
Panasonic Viera TC-P42UT50 42" 3D 1080p Plasma TV

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1406618/official-panasonic-ut50-series-discussion-thread

It's sold out now, discontinued, and very difficult to find online (of course you're talking to ME - found a few, but not terribly reputable online stores)

Here's a few links that looked interesting:

Also, the AVSForum thread says rumor is some Sears have limited stock on it now.

Also, I don't believe it's a "smart TV" - it has SOME features - but you can solve that with a Roku or something.

Else, you're buying new old stock, like a LG 42LK530 or Panasonic TC-P42ST30:
