Remember that Hitachi 1024x1080 plasma panel that threw a lot of people for a loop a few weeks ago? Fujitsu is using that same panel in their new A4 series plasmas. This panel allows for a dramatic lower energy use and a higher resolution with a total pixel count of nearly 1.105 million! This panel scales the vertical resolution down a bit with the goal of a more uniform picture and the horizontal gets scaled up a bit with the same thing in mind. Anyways, check out this thread for more details about the resolution. The plasma also has a very high brightness of 1400cd/m2 (42-inch model). The set of course has proprietary picture this and proprietary control that to give you that notorious Fujitsu picture.
