GPNC Korea announced world's second (?) Android HDTV

androidtv2.jpgRemember People Of Lava, the company touting the first ever Android-sporting HDTV? A new company out of South Korea called GPNC Korea is advertising a new Android-based HDTV that is practically identical to the People Of Lava offering. Inside is an 833 MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, support for ATSC and NTSC broadcasting, and more. Furthermore, the LED-backlit HDTV will be available in 42-, 47- and 52-inch display sizes. But will it actually come to fruition? If it does we won't be seeing any of the GPNC Korea models in North America. Despite support for North American broadcasting standards, the models are only said to be headed to Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Poland, Australia, Dubai and a couple of other countries on the other side of the pond.

A Google TV exists!

google-tv.jpgIt appears rumors of a Google TV are somewhat true, as Swedish company People Of Lava have announced a new LED-backlit HDTV based on Android 1.5. This is the same operating system used on many cellphones and media tablets, fully open source, and supported by Google.

The People Of Lava set, called the Scandinavia, will first ship in a 42-inch display size followed by 47- and 55-inch units. All of the sets display 1080p resolution, ship with YouTube, Google Maps, a web browser and other web-connected features, run on a 833 MHz Arm Cortex processor, and include a wireless keyboard and optional USB slots.

The Scandinavia will also have access to an app store, much like the one available for Android cellphones, though this one won't be run by Google.

Surprisingly, the 42-inch Scandinavia will cost $2500--a ton of money considering the Android operating system costs People Of Lava nothing to license. Not sure I'd shell out that much money, even though an Android-based TV sounds pretty cool.

LG LX9500 3D LED TVs coming to the US

lg-lx9500.jpgLG's LX9500 LED-backlit LCD HDTV line, recently released in South Korea, is on its way to the United States in Mayin both 47- and 55-inch screen sizes. LG claims its LX9500 line has some impressive specifications--3D compatibility, 480 Hz refresh rate (what LG calls TruMotion 400 Hz), 10, 000, 000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and a tiny 0.6 inches thick bezel.

LG also will be supplying active shutter glasses to go with the LX9500 family which flutter at the same speed as the 480 Hz display. Unfortunately though, LG can't seem to compete with either Samsung or Panasonic on price alone. With prices expected to be in line with what is offered in South Korea, expect to pay well above $4000 for the 47-inch model.
