Google in talks with LG for a ‘Nexus’ TV set running Google TV 3.0
Google could be tying up with LG to introduce its next version of connected/smart TV software, Google TV. Though we would normally take such news with a grain of salt, the report comes from Bloomberg, based on accounts by two people familiar with the project. The deal between Google and LG would be similar to the ones the search giant had made with HTC for the Nexus One and Samsung for the release of the Nexus S and the Galaxy Nexus, giving LG early access to software.
Web-connected TVs were big news at CES this year, with Samsung introducing several new models in its Smart TV line. Apple is also said to be preparing its own connected and perhaps, talkative TV set.
