LG has a need for speed, and it's not the kind that Electronic Arts or Goose or Maverick can satisfy. Instead it's OCZ's subsidiary, Indilinix, that's providing LG with a shot of adrenaline by injecting its Super Ultrabook Z300 with a fast 256GB mSATA solid state drive (SSD) based on Everest. The Z330 will ship with a 256GB SSD that will be anything but a bottleneck.
Google's attempts to transform your living room into one big Web-fest have fallen flat, to say the least, and if you ask Logitech, it will tell you it made a "big mistake" getting in bed with Google, a decision that cost the company $100 million. That hasn't stopped LG from being smitten with the sultry sultan of search, and once the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas kicks off, LG will unveil a Google TV that combines Google's Android OS with its own 3D and Smart TV technologies.
Talk about multitasking. While LG Electronics gets ready to introduce the world to a 55-inch OLED HDTV at CES next week, the company is also lifting the curtain on the next generation of flat-panel televisions featuring Nano Lighting Technology. Two new sets will comprise LG's new Nano Full LED series, the LW9500 and LW7700, both of which are supposed to produce a brighter, more clear picture than current generation LED TVs.
In the future, we'll all have jetpacks, flying cars, meals in a pill, and affordable OLED televisions. Can you guess which one of those is the front runner to materialize in 2012? If you cheated and read the headline, pat yourself on the back anyway, you got it right (and if not, you're wrong, jetpacks are too much of a TSA nightmare to go mainstream any time soon).
Apparently LG has some big plans for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next month. Literally. LG on Thursday announced plans to unveil the world's largest 3D Ultra Definition (UD) TV, an 84-inch monster of a screen with Smart TV functions and an insanely high 3840x2160 screen resolution, all wrapped in a relatively slim bezel.
With CES 2012 just around the corner, we can expect to see a handful of product announcements trickle out ahead of the convention. Take for example LG's 55-inch OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) TV panel, the largest of its kind in the world, according to LG Display, which announced the TV panel today. LG hopes this will help popularize the OLED TV market.
With CES 2012 right around the corner, companies are scrambling to prepare demonstrations of next generation products and technologies. Continuing with last year's theme, we suspect 3D technology will emerge as a popular topic, and so might Intel's Wireless Display (WiDi) technology. LG, which signed a strategic alliance with Intel to promote WiDi technology, is combining the two and plans show off its upcoming LG Cinema 3D Smart TV line with embedded WiDi.
By this time next year, we expect the mobile market will be inundated with Ultrabook models from manufacturers far and wide. But for now, Ultrabooks are fairly few and far between, with only a handful of notebook makers already on board. You can add LG Electronics to the list, a surprise entry who hasn't made much chatter in regard to this new class of notebook, but just unveiled its new X-Note Z330 series nonetheless.
One of these days, 3D glasses will be obsolete and a dorky reminder of how things used to be. Kind of like rotary phones. We're not quite there yet, but we're getting closer by the day. LG Electronics is doing its part by expanding its glasses-free 3D monitor lineup with the introduction of its 25-inch DX2500, a 3D display that utilizes parallax barrier technology similar what's used on the Nintendo 3DS handheld console.
Every Android user with the requisite hardware is craving them some Ice Cream Sandwich right about now, and why not? ICS, or Android 4.0, is a major update to the Android platform filled with delicious new features, and when LG Optimus 2X owners heard they wouldn't be able to partake, they were understandably miffed. Not to worry, LG says -- ICS is coming your way.
