Wow -- cool to see a picture of what webOS is being reshaped to look like on a big screen. Seeing anything new webOS-wise is better than nothing, but I don't mean to discount LG's efforts to capitalize on the OS's strengths. More power to them.

Prices seem high to me, but I've never been interested in a 3D smart tv, so I'm not up to speed on current prices. I'd love a 60", but it would mean altering or replacing my entertainment center, which just holds my 50" Panny in the opening.

A little steep, I think, as is the nature of the "smart TV" market. The functionality I've seen in smart TVs costs about double what I could get from a combination of a non-smart TV and a smart DVD player, Roku Box, etc. I'm not so much speaking to the webOS TVs as the market in general. I'm glad they're not ludicrous prices, but they aren't going to be flying off the shelves at $2,000 for a TV that's about average in size for the American market.

I think in SK, there are such things as LG Fans and Samsung Fans, which are much like our very own Apple Fans or Palm Fans, but specific to LG or Samsung.

I have no idea what a 55" 3D HD LED ETC goes for, so I'm pretty clueless.

..... actually, i did just check my email a while ago, and I had an ad for a 60" LG from last year's run, for $1500.

... edit: just got an ad for a 46" Sony for $800, looks like it's not 3D and is refurb. As far as "smart" features go, it includes DLNA media client, and that's about it.

From a price list of a South American wholesaler importer Prices for dealers and retail. Before taxes.-

LG Smart TV 3D 47inch $1.350.- Retail $1.500.- (46 inch) Samsung $1.200.-Retail$ 1.400.-
LG Smart TV ·3D 55inch $2.000.- Retail $2.200.- Samsung $2.700.- Retail $2.970.-

Prices in Korea are higher than in America Why? I don`t know. Maybe different kind of costs and taxes increase prices there.

I would think that US pricing would be somewhat less due to increased pricing pressures and the volume of sets destined for here.

Unless this is a 4K set.

Bummer I bought a 60" LG plasma last May.
