LG files Korean trademark applications for G Watch, G Glass, G Band, G PAD and G Hub
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!

"G glass" may be confused for google glass

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.
