LG's G2 series of Google TVs were unveiled at an event in New York City called Internet Week New York, the event is an annual shindig, where NYC celebrates technology and digital culture. VentureBeat spoke to Georg Rasinski, who is the director of LG's home electronics brand management.

 

 

LG's new Google TV sports the company's motion-control, "Magic Remote". The remote features gesture control, and even includes a built-in microphone for voice commands. On the back of the remote is a full QWERTY thumb keyboard. The TV's interface is said to look much different to previous GTC devices that VentureBeat have used from Sony and Logitech. LG have heavily customized the homescreen with a 3D interface.

From the user interface, you'll have quick access to a bunch of apps and bookmarks. The G2 series of LG Google TV's is powered by LG's custom ARM-based L9 processor, which is the first dual-core chip in a Google TV device. The L9 chip will eventually be baked into LG's other flagship sets, but it is making its debut here on the G2 series.

 

LG's G2 Series Google TVs will be made available in both 47- and 55-inch models beginning next week at $1,699 and $2,299 respectively.
