LG's Google TV-enabled Smart TVs will debut in the United States on May 21

We've all seen it before, Google TV, where it launched with the Logitech Revue. It didn't do too well at all, and Logitech in the end pulled out of the market late last year. Google TV is still baked into some Smart TVs, but now we have LG Electronics wanting a new piece of that warm, Google TV pie.

Being the second largest TV maker in the world has its benefits, so LG are launching Google TV-powered Smart TVs in the United States starting on May 21. Ro Seogho, executive vice president of LG's TV business unit said to a small group of reporters:

 

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.

 

Seogho also added that LG would consider launching the Google TV-enabled Smart TV line in Europe and other countries, but that decision hasn't been finalized. LG want to evaluate the performance of the TVs in the US before launching them across the pond. The move is also a preemptive strike against Apple, who are rumored to be in the middle of designing their own "smart" television.
