The Google TV platform has had a rough start but Google hopes to fix the shortcomings with the updated Google TV 2.0 suite, offering a simpler user interface and TV apps.

LG’s G2 TVs come with LG’s Borderless design and the new boomerang-shaped stand. The Google TV platform has been built into LG’s own Smart TV platform with a bottom menu that pops up with one push on the remote control. The Google Play store provides access to third-party TV apps and Google’s own services; just like on any Android smartphone or tablet. The user interface is controlled with a motion and voice-enabled Magic Remote with a full QWERTY keyboard on the back. The OnLive cloud gaming platform is also available.
