Former HP CTO weighs in on LG’s webOS TV

pivotCE reached out to former HP CTO, Phil McKinney, for his thoughts on LG’s implementation of webOS for their new line of TVs.  As you may remember, Phil was on the HP board of directors and was pivotal to HP’s Palm acquisition.  He has since retired from HP and is now the President and CEO of CableLabs.  He just happens to be attending CES 2014 and had a chance to answer our inquiry with a hands-on look.  Here’s what he had to say about the rebirth of the webOS platform:

LG will show webOS TVs at CES 2014

Do you remember webOS Nation’s sad video from CES 2013 where they tried to find webOS stuff?  Well, it looks like we won’t be disappointed again this year.

Up til now we’ve only seen screenshots and heard rumors.  But LG researcher Hong Sung-pyo confirmed the presentation of their new webOS TV set at CES 2014 in Las Vegas!

With a purported 2.2 GHz dual-core processor and 1.5 GB of RAM this will be the highest spec hardware webOS has ever officially run on.  We will see how much LG customized the interface.  According to rumors from the beginning of the year they revamped it completely.



That’s what LG called webOS together with their Smart TVs.  I’m very exited what this means for webOS, Enyo, and especially for our current devices.  Will the TVs use the current App Catalog?  It would be great if developers (re)start creating new apps.  I can’t wait to see what LG is preparing.  What do you think?
