The smart TV scene may be increasingly the preserve of affordable set-top boxes like Chromecast and Fire TV, but LG isn't giving up on its webOS plans, pushing out the tools it hopes will encourage developers to get onboard. Freshly released, the webOS TV SDK will allow developers to cook up apps for LG's sets, test them on a TV emulator, and then package them up for distribution to the new app store.
Recently, an LG executive commented on the state of their involvement with the Nexus program. Speaking to Dutch media, LG’s Director of Communications Ken Hong noted they weren’t involved with the next Nexus device “yet”. He went on to note that LG typically has something on the table and in the works by now, as they have with the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5.
You know that something is near completion when certain sources "accidentally" publish something meant for a later date. That could very well be the case for Google Play Store in Germany, which, for a very brief period, put up a page that revealed the LG G Watch's presence. Though to be honest, it really doesn't say much about it at all.
It may be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how badly you want the feature. The LG G Watch was once rumored to come with a standalone variant sporting its own connectivity power. Though that rumor still persists, the latest development is that this model will only be limited to its home Korean market.
With Amazon’s supposed 3D-capable smartphone headed our way inside a week, it’s once again time to discuss why 3D phones aren’t the smartest buy right off the bat. What we’re speaking about here is the purchase of a 3D-capable smartphone when it’s released - in its first iteration, at the start of the 3D environment coming to the mobile smart device world. There aren’t many devices out there to use as examples.
Like any high-end smartphone these days, the LG G3 comes with a boatload of features, probably more than you can remember from the top of your head. To help keep users from drowning in those, LG has uploaded a series of Smart Tip videos that show off those unique features and give a glimpse on how to use them.
The rivalry between Korean companies Samsung and LG might once again reach a high point soon. A batch of leaked photos have come out showing what is supposedly the Galaxy F, the other name for the rumored Galaxy S5 Prime, sporting a seemingly brushed metal rear, just after LG unveiled the G3 with a similar, but rather deceptive, design.
