LG Google TV coming on May 21st

In the lead up to Apple TV, LG is getting into bed with Google

LG should release an internet-enabled Google TV on May 21st. The clever panel is aiming to compete with the upcoming Apple iTV rumoured for an unveiling later this year.

LG’s Google TV is reported to be launching on May 21st by Reuters, which claims to have got the dates from an LG executive. While Google can expand its advertising to your living room, LG should be able to continue shifting TVs at a rate that can compete with Samsung and, soon, Apple. What does that mean for us? Google searches and YouTube accessible from your armchair with, hopefully, a fast and stable browser.

Sadly, the LG Google TVs will initially launch in the US only. If it is successful, Europe and Asia will also get their hands on LG Google TV... just in time to beat the Apple TV launch we’d wager.
