LG releases two new TVs based on Google softwareLG Electronics is unveiling two new television models based on Google’s software.
The Seoul-based company will introduce the televisions at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month, the company said in a statement. The new models will feature a redesigned remote control and improved voice recognition-based search. Google, operator of the world’s most popular search engine, is trying to get more electronics makers to adopt its TV software, which debuted to lackluster sales for initial hardware partners Sony and Logitech International SA in 2010. The software brings Google’s search and online services to television screens with Internet connectivity. LG said it will use Google’s software in some models alongside its own smart TV technology.
