LG tunes in to Google TV

Android-equipped tellies out in 2012

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

LG has hopped on the Google TV bandwagon.

LG will show off a smart TV loaded with Google's Android-based telly interface at next week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The set will do passive 3D, with 2D-to-3D conversion on board.

LG said it was not dropping its own IPTV UI, which will be available on more than 60 per cent of its tellies this year.

LG Google TV

"Google TV is a great concept, Google TV has the potential to completely disrupt living room," De Luca told investors. "The integration of television in Internet is inevitable. But the idea that it would happen overnight in Christmas 2010 was very misguided and that also cost us dearly."

Both Sony and Samsung have also given Google TV the thumbs-up. ®
