New TVs combine LG 3D TVs with Android OS
LG Electronics is set to introduce Google TV at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week.
LG Smart TV with Google TV is designed to combine Google's Android OS with LG's 3D and Smart TV technologies.
"LG has constantly strived to provide consumers with wider choices in home entertainment that bring the highest level of sophistication and convenience," said Havis Kwon, president and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "Through Google TV, LG has merged Google's established Android operating system with LG's proven 3D and Smart TV technologies, offering consumers a new and enthralling TV experience."
LG's Google TV features an Android-based user interface and a Magic Remote Qwerty designed by LG. The TVs search, social networking and TV functions can be run simultaneously and the user interface can be accessed using the Magic Remote Qwerty which combines LG's Magic Remote with a Qwerty keyboard.
Google TV also features LG's own Cinema 3D technology, with battery-free 3D.
LG will continue to advance its own Smart TV platform based on NetCast, which will be available in more than 60% of LG's flat panel TVs scheduled for introduction over the year, according to the company.
