SMILEY FACED FIRM LG has announced that it will present its Google powered TV at the consumer electronics show (CES).

CES kicks off next week in Las Vegas. LG's Google TV will be available in the US this year but sadly not in the UK until 2013.

Havis Kwon, president and CEO of LG said, "Through Google TV, LG has merged Google's established Android operating system with LG's proven 3D and Smart TV technologies, offering consumers a new and enthralling TV experience."

LG touts the device's ease of use as a top feature thanks to the combination of its Android-based user interface and Magic Remote control. The software can handle multitasking with search, social networking and TV running simultaneously.

Like LG's recent line of TVs it will come with passive Cinema 3D capability and 2D to 3D conversion on the fly.

Although LG has joined forces with Google on this product it is not ditching its own Smart TV interface. The Korean firm said that will be available on more than 60 per cent of its flat panel TVs this year. µ
