Folks, LG will start selling Google TV sets this month, a senior executive has confirmed, with consumers in the US eventually able to pick up the smart televisions. Sales in the United States will begin in the week of May 21, LG TV senior executive told Reuters. “Production of Google TVs will start from May 17 from our factory in Mexico and U.S. Consumers will be able to buy the product from the week of May 21,” Ro Seogho, executive vice president of LG’s TV business unit, told a small group of reporters.
Back in January LG announced its Google TV versions the the LMG860 and LMG620, utilizing a custom quadcore ARM chipset. It is based on Android 3.1 “Honeycomb” and features a modified version of the Google Chrome browser which integrates web services with existing TV and online content. The remote will come up with a QWERTY and will be used for navigation, much as we’ve seen from a previous Google TV kit from Sony and others. The pricing remains undisclosed. What do you think?
