    they will more than likely just push the enyo side of things, that way apps bought on their TV, can still work on any other os they support, which is pretty much android atm.

    In other news, if it didn't say webOS on it, people would never make the connection.

    I like it, but it doesnt feel like the webOS we know & love at all. Not really a cards style look that you can move sort or even throw cards out. It looks like to close a card you have to click an X.

    Did I miss something about the voice/gesture controls? I'm at work and just visually look at the video without sound.

    Exactly my thoughts too. What is 'webOS' at this TV? I don't see anything I love about webOS in this TV. Its great to see the logo of webOS back in the news, but I was hoping to recognize more in the UI. At the press conference they told us that they started with putting webOS on Smart TV's, but will continue with other devices. They didn't say what devices. Still hoping that will be phones. But I'm hoping the UI will look more like the current Pre's.

    It was nice to hear them say webOS several times though. No, it really doesn't look like current webOS, and it doesn't surprise me. Closing by clicking will be easier with a remote than tossing away a card would be. It's much easier on a touch interface. I don't recall them talking about voice or gesture controls, but I was listening while working, so I could have missed it.

    Yea, if it does come to other devices like phones & tablets, I would have to assume this would be their new look. Perhaps its a skin in a sense of webOS in the sense of how Android is used by Samsung & LG etc but its truly webOS underneath?

    I just still want to see a report of how long it takes to turn on the tv & fully boot up.

    Also if LG pushes the enjoy framework, wouldn't that mean more apps? And if LG has an app store, will they have an app store for legacy devices or will HP still run that (half a$$ed as it is).

    Guess its just confusing....so this is LG webOS, not Open webOS...two different animals? Or now that LG owns webOS, is there going to be....::::head explodes:::: :-P

    That's the funny thing, because at least for the time that I've been around webOS, there's not any particular hard and fast UI elements, other than apps having a menu that pulls down from the upper left .. there's no actual recognizable UI in webOS except for the task-switcher and status bar. And frankly, I think that the status-bar-notifications are done way better in webOS 3, and in current android/ios/etc. I hated in 2.x how the notifications came up and resized the apps. .

    so, anyway, webOS isn't necessarily about the task switching. OK, that may be the part you love about it, but there's a whole lot more to it than that.

    This is great. The UI is gorgeous and feels alive (I love the transitions), and its probably the best way to reimagine webOS's deck of cards for a Wiimote pointer-esque interface. It even has all the little things, too, like when you hover over the X to close an application a skull pops up above (Skull and cross bones!) which I thought was a thoughtful addition.

    It's how I would imagine the Wii to be if it were a multimedia box, except this UI is great for TV viewing. Having all open cards and app launcher cards along the bottom means the main TV content is never obscured, after all. And I'm happy LG went with a Wiimote-like controller too.

    If LG's goal was to simplify the Smart TV UI and introduce a framework that's makes it easy to get content onto the platform then I'd say things are looking promising indeed. It's far better than what users currently have to put up with (the old Samsung interface that crops up halfway through the video is particularly shocking), and I'd be proud to have it on my TV.

    Well...it might be different from where I would have gone with webOS but...

    a. they did not just slap on the original look, but thought about the way it would fit on the medium (TV)...then again, how well would this new design be transported back to tablets and phones (I do feel it was designed to work well with gestures as well though)?
    b. they were willing to get rid of some of the beloved things of webOS (e.g. live cards)...while I might dislike some of their choices, it is important to realize that the best designs are not limited by a feeling of the designer's nostalgia.
    c. some people on the internet claim that webOS has not aged well (they never give an argument for that claim, and I disagree, but still), and this sure is not webOS from 2011.
    d. webOS has always been more than cards. It's always been more about flow and synergy for me (yes, the cards are part of the flow, but the flow is not part of the cards). If they managed to keep those, then webOS is in good hands.
    e. I wouldn't mind some beanbird casual games for my Touchpad. Just because...

    all that said...is it webOS? - I don't know, but LG at least isn't afraid to say that it is. Apparently they don't consider it a tainted brand. And that - for me - is a good thing.



    Edit: oh, and I'm not convinced by the style of the cursor...

    This is a good video. If there is some solution for local media playback and sharing stuff... plus a full HTML5 browser... then that's like nearly everything most people want right there.

    I guess chat/video calling would be something else. Hopefully we'll see a keyboard remote and voice input, or at the very least, remote control apps for everything people already have.

    Would cards be needed on a smart TV? I don't think so.

    I'm excited by the fact that Netflix shared stage with it.

    Press Release: LG MAKES SMART TV SIMPLE WITH NEW WEBOS SMART TV PLATFORM

    New Platform Represents Completely New Paradigm in
    Smart TVs Now and in the Future



    LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014 LG Electronics (LG) today unveiled its newest Smart TV platform at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. webOS, which was purchased from Hewlett-Packard in March last year, has been reinvented and reintroduced as LGs new Smart TV platform. The new operating system offers an intuitive user interface for an experience that is both seamless and refreshingly uncomplicated, based on years of experience collected by the webOS team. Furthermore, the new platform makes it extremely easy for developers to create applications and enhances the compatibility of LGs Smart TVs with other devices.

    We are extremely excited to be able to introduce webOS optimized for LG Smart TV here at CES 2014 said In-kyu Lee, Senior Vice President and head of the TV division at the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. The beauty of webOS is that it provides so much freedom, and is so simple to use. We feel confident that consumers will find navigating, exploring and switching between different forms of content on webOS a truly enjoyable, not frustrating, experience.

    Simple to Connect, Easy to Use
    The webOS platform, which will be implemented in more than 70 percent of LGs Smart TVs in 2014, greatly simplifies the smart TV experience. Its ease-of-use makes content searching and viewing, connecting with other devices, and even the initial setup process incredibly smooth. The first time the user turns on the webOS-enabled LG Smart TV, an animated character named BeanBird appears onscreen to help get connected and walk the use through the setup process. All the viewer has to do is shake the Magic Remote or press the OK button to receive further advice from the winged virtual facilitator. webOS can instantly recognize when and what kind of external device has been plugged into the TV and brings up a pop-up menu listing all relevant options for the user to choose from.

    Instant Access and Easy Content Switching
    The new Launcher, a left-to-right scrollable menu that runs along the lower portion of the screen is one of the most distinctive features of webOS. The Launcher makes it possible to switch between broadcast TV, smart TV content and media stored on external devices without having to return to the Home screen. It allows the viewer to simultaneously watch a show, play a game or browse the internet while searching or downloading other content. Whats more, Live Menu, which can be opened while viewing the TV, keeps the search, recommendation and channel options within easy reach.

    Content Discovery Made Simple
    The webOS development team in LGs Silicon Valley Lab created the unique Today menu as a one-stop content recommendation service, suggesting popular TV shows, programs that have been missed as well as full-feature movies. Running horizontally along the center of the screen, the Today bar can also be scrolled up or down via the Magic Remote wheel to reveal more exciting viewing options.

    LGs webOS also offers access to the LG Stores comprehensive collection of apps. The LG Store lets users browse the most-viewed and most-downloaded items available from across the Smart TV platform, including broadcast TV programs and the latest games. The logically organized categories, which include 3D content, games and movies, employ thumbnail images for fast and convenient selection of content.

    Visitors to LGs CES booth (2014 (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #8204) from January 7 to January 10 can experience webOS on LGs latest OLED TVs, 4K ULTRA HD TVs and on other models from the companys new year Home Entertainment lineup.
