LG continues to claim otherwise:
"However, CNET has spoken with a well-placed LG official who insists the report is inaccurate. "LG's plans have not changed for initial launch in late 2012," he said. That launch will likely be in limited quantities, said the official, and he couldn't go into detail as to whether the TVs would launch in Korea only or elsewhere this year."
You can translate that however you wish. I read it clearly as: "We have no chance of launching the TV in any real way this year, but we are going to try to sell a few in Korea for bragging rights. We have 60 days left to do that, so keep an eye out in some high-end shops in Seoul. Because we are not talking about many units. But we are going to shoot for a non-zero number."
Anyway, the answer to the poll is, "No." The 83% wisdom of the crowd proved correct.
There's a saying about "everything in moderation". If only it was applied to well, you know...
