The LG press event is winding down. Thanks for tuning in, everyone. We’ll have more on the Smart Life later on.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:38 am

22″ throw projector from the screen, with up to a 100″ display. Look for it at their booth. We’ll check it out if able.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:37 am

Moving to 100% LED in 2013. No more CCFL.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:36 am

7 models of Google TV in 5 screen sizes.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:35 am

Back to Smart TV, where LG claims to have innovated the UI to be more user friendly and better search enhancements

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:34 am

‘You can now buy our 84″ OLED TV. Did I mention it’s available now??” FOr like $20,000.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:32 am

2013 LG OLED TV launching in march $12,000

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:32 am

Correction: Guess not at CES. Still holding out hope.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:31 am

2013 is a year of significant growth for LG Mobile. At MWC, we’ll unveil new top-of-the-line devices. Guess not.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:30 am

Cut to video on the partnership with Qualcomm. LG has focused on current devices thus far, likely building up to something new.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:29 am

Nexus 4. Yep, there’s one area of non-dispute. THe nexus 4 rocks!

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:28 am

Also proud of the Optimus G, the first LTE quad-core phone

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:27 am

OH, okay, they’re totally proud of the LG Intuition/Optimus Vu. The intuition is the ultimate phone tablet/hybrid.

Yeah, we didn’t like it.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:27 am

Key partners: Verizon, ESPN, etc.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:27 am

Zero Gap touch technology that make touch screens more intuitive while offering full HD IPS clarity. We’ve also improved battery life on our devices.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:26 am

Significant growth in the smartphone market. We’ve made awesome product (as long as you don’t look at the VU, please don’t judge us on the Vu)

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:25 am

“We’re going to do some things with appliances” – Marketing guy.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:24 am

Smart washing machine with WiFI diagnosis. Smart Oven that allow you to edit cooking settings via your smartphone. A fridge that turns your fridge into a full food management system.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:23 am

For 2013, we’re introducing a new line of smart appliances, with smartphone connectivity with NFC.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:22 am

Consumers want Smart, fast, and reliable. Not complicated manuals, not difficult to interact with. We want things that just work.

Where have we heard that one before?

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:21 am

At LG, Smart is not a descriptor, it’s an action.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:20 am

James Fishler, Senior VP, Marketing.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:19 am

LG has a new Laser TV with an up to 100″ screen with full HD quality and smart TV capabilities. No cables, but it has fricken LASERS!

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:18 am

3D gaming in “ultra HD” streamed from your Android phone/tablet. LG has developed the next-generation TV streaming solution from the OPtimus Smartphone that provides HD gaming on a huge 84″ screen.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:17 am

Ultra HD TV – huge 84″ screen and “amazing” resolution. “We will continue to lead the TV market in 2013″

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:16 am

OLED TV – Seriously, I want one of these. Too bad they cost like $20,000. That’s like 20,000 times Techgress’ budget at the moment. ;)

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:16 am

Doorception. LG’s new fridge has a door within a door, in an effort to minimize cool air flow loss.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:15 am

Innovative smartphone UX. I can only assume he’s talking about LG’s Android skin, which I personally don’t like, even though it’s improved a bit. Here’s hoping they’re coming out with a new version.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:14 am

And, no, LG didn’t say that about the xbox.. ;)

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:14 am

Gesture control for smart TV. Yes, this probably is the future. One day, we’ll all have an Xbox house.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:13 am

Magic Remote is the most natural way to control your TV. A few jeers at that one, including an audible “No it’s not”

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:13 am

TVs are getting smarter, but our remotes are dumb.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:12 am

Here’s the real awesome thing. The refrigerator knows what you have, and can let you know what you need when you’re at the grocery store.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:12 am

Setting up a connected home has been likened to rocket science. We’ve created the one-touch connection, with one-touch connection (NFC tags), and smart apps that have simple UIs that allow you complete control over your appliances, TV, media.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:10 am

Free of complicated interfaces. So, maybe we’ll stop skinning Android soon?

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:09 am

Smart life should be free and natural, stress-free, and breathtaking.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:09 am

“The word ‘smart’ has been added to everything”

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:08 am

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:04 am

Wayne Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics takes the stage.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:03 am

LG is inviting us to “Touch the Smart LIfe” Look for them to push connected living.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:02 am

Probably going to see a lot of OLED TVs. There’s also a washer and dryer set onstage, and we have the sneaking suspicion a tablet and smartphone or two will make their way in.

Anthony Domanico January 7, 201310:01 am

We’re here at the show. Mostly text updates for now; hopefully we’ll figure out pictures and text later on today.
