Google TV adoption by manufacturers is picking up significantly in 2012. One by one, new devices have been announced and the platform looks like it might be on the way to making the impact it was expected to at launch.
LG is the latest to jump on the Google TV train with two models of Google TV sets being revealed next week at CES. It offers LG's passive Cinema 3D and 2D to 3D conversion and almost certainly includes a few pairs of glasses. You'll also find the motion control Magic Remote that includes a full QWERTY keyboard. LG specifies QWERTY which seems a bit silly. What TV maker is going to create a Dvorak remote?
There are a few mysteries as to the size of the televisions though the model in the promotional picture looks to be around 40". The other big mystery is what kind of hardware the LG Google TV will be packing. It might be too early to expect the recently adopted Marvell processor, but if the deal has been in the works for a while we might indeed see the quicker chip inside LG's TV.
