LG to introduce 3D TVs in May

Consumer Electronics Show kicks off in Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — LG Electronics says it will introduce its first 3D-capable flat panel TVs for the U.S. market in May.

Other major TV makers are expected to join the Korean company with announcements of 3D TVs later Wednesday at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The industry is making a major push to get 3D into the home while consumers are still excited by 3D movies in theaters.

Prices for the new LG sets have not yet been announced. But Tim Alessi, director of product development at LG Electronics USA, said the TVs will likely cost about $200 to $300 more than comparable sets without 3D functions.
