[CES 2011] At the LG press conference today, they mentioned that 2011 will be the year of LG’s smart products, especially their smart TV. The smart TV will be a new and improved platform that offers improved UI, content and support for TV apps. It’s basically a TV that does more than just play your shows. You’ll be able to run apps on your TV, browse the internet, stream content online as well as stream content from your television itself. While the concept in itself is not new, it’s been done before, LG plans to make their Smart TVs easy to set up and easy to use. And for those who don’t want to purchase a brand new Smart TV from LG can simply purchase the Smart TV upgrader to make their TV do the same things. More details about pricing when we get closer to the launch date. Looks like smart TVs are the next big thing for this year as well.
