LG’s Google TV sets New Standards for Smart TVs
The most popular mobile operating platform in the world has made its way into LG 3D Smart TVs. And that’s great news for anyone who wants not only the ease and convenience of being able to surf at will from their couch, but also for anyone who wants access to the entire webiverse of outstanding content on a gorgeous big screen TV.
The partnership was unveiled at the CES inLas Vegasin January and we couldn’t be more excited about it. You may have heard of Google TV from other manufactures before, but this isn’t like anything you’ve seen or heard of. This is a coming together of Google’s wildly popular Android OS with LG’s outstanding 3D and Smart TV technology.
Now, we don’t say this often but, let’s forget for a moment about all those great features we pack into our TVs. The first thing that will strike you is that it’s so easy to use. The combination of the Android based interface and apps, with the Magic Remote specially designed for the TV works, well, like magic.
The Google TV Magic Remote developed by LG has more than a few tricks up its sleeve. It works like the standard Magic Remote with an on screen pointer. You can wave it around and hover the pointer to what you want to access and click. There’s also a directional pad on the remote, so you can surf from on box to another with a simple click of the arrow. When you’re surfing pages of content, you also have a scroll wheel, getting rid of the need to search for the scroll bar on your screen.
But the real secret is in the backside of the remote. Whenever you miss your keyboard when surfing the web, flip your Magic Remote over and you’ll see a full Qwerty keyboard waiting for you. And what good is a Google TV without Google’s popular Chrome browser and the world’s most popular search engine?
So when something pops into your mind, just hover your pointer to your Chrome browser, flip your remote over, and start typing. That’s how we search on our computers, and that’s exactly how we can do it on LG’s new Google TV.
Equipped with LG’s CINEMA 3D technology and Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology, it also delivers exceptional 3D pictures, with battery-free and lightweight glasses. It’s really an ideal TV for 3D viewing with family and friends, and for taking full advantage of all of Android features that works seamlessly.
