    LG Said to Plan to Debut Google TV at January Consumer Electronics Show


    11/11/2011


    Google Inc. and LG Electronics Inc. may unveil a television using the search giant's software at the January Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, according to two people with knowledge of the project.


    The product would be LG's first model with Google TV, said the people, who declined to be identified because the discussions aren't public. Support from the world's second-largest TV manufacturer may boost Google's attempt to bring its dominance in Internet search to living rooms with the Google TV software.

    Manufacturers are recognizing the massive potential inherent in a system like this and it will lead to a much sleeker and sharper product and experience. When Google first announced the Android OS and that it would be open-source, I was ecstatic. For the first time in the mobile industry, there was going to be real competition between handset makers to grab consumers. Google leveled the the playing field so to speak with the same software base going to each developer. Now it was up to them to put a spin on it and more importantly, make the most attractive piece of hardware. I can easily see this same thing happening in the TV market. Plus with the increased adoption of the technology by manufacturers, we'll hopefully see more willingness from content distributors to allow access and tap into a new market.
