LG to release Google TV-enabled set in US in late May

LG Electronics announced it will release its anticipated Google TV-enabled television set in the United States during late May.

“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,” said Executive Vice President of LG’s TV business unit Ro Seogho to a group of reporters.

According to Reuters, Seogho further revealed that a launch in Europe and Asia would follow as long as the product performs well stateside.

Earlier this month, 9to5Google also reported LG’s 3D Google TV-enable sets would launch in early May.

LG first introduced its Google TV at January’s 2012 International CES in Las Vegas.

Google TV is a Google-branded smart TV platform that integrates the Android operating system and Chrome browser to create an interactive television user-interface that is overlaid onto existing internet television and WebTV. The service initially launched in late 2010 with collaboration from Sony and Logitech.
