Operating systems like Android, iOS, Windows, Windows Phone, OS X, and Linux might be familiar to many of you guys, but let’s not forget that at one time HP tried to make webOS popular by launching tablets powered by it.

LG is rumored to be working on a smartwatch powered by webOS, the platform that didn’t quite take off on smartphones and tablets, and was later picked up by LG for its smart TVs.

[CES 2015] Just like smartphones, there isn’t much point of having a smart TV if there isn’t much content going to be available on it.

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show back in January we did see LG smart TVs powered by WebOS. The company is now detailing its plans for the future. It says that a major upgrade for […]
Just like how a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, so too, is a Smart TV as “smart” as the apps that run on it. You can have all of the hardware capability available, but if it is unable to be accompanied by the relevant apps to keep it going or to maximize its potential, then it is all for naught. LG has then taken the step […]
According to the good people over at LG Electronics, the South Korean company has sold more than a million units of the webOS-enabled Smart+ TVs ever since the range was launched earlier this March, which is quite an achievement when you think about it considering not everyone has the means to upgrade their TV after having done so recently.
