At the end of October, Google announced that they were updating their Google TV with claims that this time around it would be a lot better than the first version. The Internet search giant had stated that Google TV would be made available on Sony as well as Logitech devices. Since, the announcement of the updated Google TV, Logitech has distanced themselves from Google TV citing that the affair was a financial disaster for the company. According to a report by Bloomberg Businessweek, it seems that LG is looking to fill that void left by Logitech and unveil a television set that is based on Google TV at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2012.
LG to team up with Google to launch Google TV?
Unnamed sources have informed Bloomberg that this would be the first LG TV with Google TV. LG is the world’s second largest television manufacturer and with their partnership with Google in unveiling a Google TV, this may help Google in building their Internet features on television sets. The report goes on to state that both parties in question have declined to comment on the launch of the new television.
