Why is Samsung so adamant to make the Linux-based Tizen operating system work, despite the critical opinion of most wireless carriers worldwide? Apparently, the platform is “lighter” than other OSes (cough, Android, cough), and eats up less processing power and memory, “thereby ensuring faster device speeds while consuming less energy.”
At the Consumer Electronics Show this year, LG revealed it would ship a 65-inch Ultra High Definition 4K OLED (organic light emitting diode) TV by the end of 2014. Now, thanks to a leak, we know the retail price of the item will be $8,999, but it will sell for $6,999.
LG says that it has now reached a new milestone, the sale of one millions webOS televisions after making its first set of the TVs available in March. The new LG Smart+ TVs with webOS were introduced at CES 2014 in January before they were actually sold to consumers. That means it took just over two months for LG to sell one millions webOS televisions and the company now has an updated goal, 10 million sales by the “first half of 2015″.

CES 2014: Samsung to Release 85-inch Bendable UHD TV, 105-inch Curved UHD TV on the second half of 2014
That 98-inch 8K TV Samsung is showcasing at the CES isn’t the biggest screen they have. The Korean giant also has the first curved ultra HD in the market and we just learned it will be released in the second half of 2014. This means retailers would be receiving the 105-inch curved UHD TV together with the 85-inch TV either in summer or during the holiday season we saw earlier this week in Vegas.
One of the great things about smartphones and tablets is the portable size. But sometimes their screens just feel too small for when you want to kick back and enjoy some entertainment.
