General Electric came clean with its intentions to delve into the wide world of HDTVs last September… and then the economy, as well as GE itself, fell apart. Earlier this year, we were actually clued in on some of the details surrounding the Tatung-built sets, but now we’re hearing that the company is pushing everything back by around three months. GE maintains that the setback is due to “marketing rather than operational or manufacturing issues,” though we all know right about now isn’t the greatest time to introduce new high-end televisions. We also get the idea that GE may use the time to better implement connected HDTV features given just how prevalent those were at CES, but again, we’re really just shooting in the dark here. Oh, we forgot to even ask — does anyone care that GE’s getting back into the TV biz, let alone that its forthcoming sets are delayed?
