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 is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)
