They are going to have to make choices about how the final product works.
The LG prototype had no electronics on board and needs to be tethered to a port/power box by an "umbilical". I've spoken repeatedly about how much people hate that design. Some AVSers like it, but really, not one model with that design has ever been successful or liked. It's an option for LG, however.
Alternatively, they can add a small amount of depth to the design to support standard plugs and cables.
As for mounting, so long as they have a way of attaching a mounting plate, they'll be fine. The design is light enough that they can create a small system of rails/grooves and let you slide a plate into then then lock that down with a couple of tiny screws. The plate would be designed to work with VESA standard mounts.
