LG files Korean trademark applications for G Watch, G Glass, G Band, G PAD and G Hub
Korean manufacturer LG has filed a number of trademark applications in Korea with indications that at least two of them are for wearable devices, including a smartwatch. The applications each used the letter "G" in the filings which is supposed to indicate that the device is a high-end model. LG recently announced that it was removing the "Optimus" title from its high-end smartphones and replacing it with the letter "G".

The application for G Watch was made in the watch and mobile phone category. An application for G Glass was filed in the category that includes glasses and mobile phones, and could be LG's version of Google Glass. G PAD's trademark application was filed under the tablets category. Other applications were made for G Hub and G Band.

Back in March, when speculation about Apple's iWatch started picking up momentum, LG said that it too was working on a smartwatch and a device similar to Google Glass. At the time, there was some thought that LG would use the new Firefox OS for a watch and connected specs. Sources say that LG might introduce the G Watch, G PAD and G Glass as soon as September at the IFA 2013 show in Berlin. The date on the trademark applications is July 8th, 2013.

They could use a more friendly logo. The current one looks... I dunno... too industrial?

It seems kind of weird to have LG stand for Lucky Goldstar, and their motto being 'Life's Good' with a winking face when their logo looks so... bold?

The 'G' is becoming a little to much.
Samsung has the S, Apple has the 'i', Sony has 'everything' and now LG has the 'G'... Why are manufacturers so into that kind of stuff?

A certain streamlining of services isn't such a bad thing. Even Google does it with Play Books, Music etc. and Microsoft now, with Xbox Music, Movies...

What I do find funny though is that they decided to use 'Hub'... just pull out a thesaurus man!

It's basically Samsung, down to their watered down TouchWiz UI. Their recent Optimus/G series phones even imitate the design language of Galaxy S series. They're now looking to do similar dubbing of their proprietary software it seems as well.
