Despite Google TV struggling to attract users and forge a market in the US, LG has unveiled its first Google TV devices at CES 2012 ahead of the service’s UK arrival next year.
Taking internet-connected TVs to the next level, the LG Google TV will see a new 3D offering land with the Android based Google television service featured alongside LG’s established and well respected Smart TV platform.
