Sony actually launched the first Google TV in October 2010 and Logitech later launched a Google TV set-top. At that time there were issues with the speed of navigation and search functions, but Google now believes it has made the necessary fixes to these wrinkles in its once hailed revolutionary product and is ready to compete with the other Net TV services on the market. Their goal is to make it even easier for users to find content than ever.
The LG Google TV is expected to be shipped to retail in March 2012.
