Another Feather in the Cap: LG adds Google TV

By Rohit Ramesh on Wednesday 26th of Dec 2012

LG TVLG Corp. is all set to be the world’s Number One in the consumer electronics division – it has taken the right step by agreeing to début two Google TVs. LG made an announcement on the launch of the Google TVs – GA7900 and GA6400 – at CES, next month in Las Vegas.

Last year, LG experimented with G2 series, a Google TV line-up. The 47- and 55- inch version experience wasn’t up to the mark but expectations are running higher this time. The GA7900 is offering 55- and 47- inch while the GA6400 goes from 60-inch down to 42-inch. These two TVs have the best features of the G2 series, viz.  the QWERTY magic motion remote, passive 3D technology and edge-lit LED. This series includes a 240 Hz refresh rate as against a 120 Hz last year. The GA7900 offers an edge-lit LED with dimming. The keyboard uses “natural language recognition” via a built-in microphone to make the searches easier and “broadcast TV or internet content with one vocal command.” GA7900 has the ‘Cinema Screen’ – 1mm thin LCD bezels.

According to sources, Google TV uses a version of Honeycomb 3.2. Services include OnLive gaming platform app, a full browser, home dashboard and LG’s own PrimeTime Quick Guide.

Rumours say that the AppleTV might see the light of the day in 2013. LG seems armed up for the battle. Stay tuned for more news on the new experiment.
