LG to Showcase Two New Google TV Models at CES 2013

LG has announced that at CES 2013 (which will be taking place in a couple of weeks), it will be be showing two brand new Google TV devices.

As you can see in the image above, these new Google TVs by LG appear to be pretty slim, and thanks to the fact that the bezel is almost non-existent, it certainly makes the device larger than it really is. They will be available in sizes ranging from 42" up to a whopping 60".

They will be running on Google TV 3.0 with the software integrated into the panel itself, and will come with several new features such as more advanced voice recognition of the redesigned Magic Remote. The LG Google TV will also come with OnLive preinstalled that lets gamers have access to games in the cloud. Additional details of the LG Google TV will be unveiled at CES 2013.

Acer Plans to Launch $99 Tablet

According to a person with direct knowledge of the project, as referred by the Wall Street Journal, Acer is planning to launch an Android tablet priced around $99 early next year.

At seven inches with a 1024 x 600 resolution screen and 1.2GHz dual-core processor, the so-called Iconia B1 tablet will have somewhat similar specs to Amazon Kindle Fire and the Barnes and Noble Nook Color. But Acer plans to undercut those best-selling tablets' $139 price tag by offering the Iconia B1 for around $99, the person said. The final shelf price will be determined country-by-country.

The blue-edged Acer Iconia B1′s pictures surfaced this month on a Serbian forum. They were confirmed as authentic by a person familiar with the project.

Aside from the Iconia B1, another person with direct knowledge of Acer's tablet products said the company is also planning to launch a low-priced version of its Intel-based Windows 8 tablets early next year, as its current ones are "too pricey".
