Smile any thoughts on new Mitsubishi 73" laser TV due out in October?

I need to upgrade my existing rear projection tv; currently an older Mitsubishi 73233. I want to be able to view Blue Ray on 24 frames/ 120hz refresh rate; with great color; detail; and brightness for a viewing room with too many windows; and not set up for a projector. Room is very big. I'm intrigued by the recent release of the Diamond 73835; it appears to consume less power than the prior model; and has a good picture. I understand their new laser is pending release in Ocotber; don't know pricing or size; or weight; or how it will compare to dlp; or lcd. Initial reviews seemed to suggest colors almost too vivid...
My experience is that first generation of new technology is always fraught with problems; and they fix it the next year; and lower the price. So; do I buy the current 73835; wait until Ocotber; and see if this set's price drops with the release of the laser; or bite the bullit and buy the laser on first release....
