DLNA is a pretty handy way
to stream videos, music, or view photos to an enabled device, such as a newer flat screen TVs. If you are still stuck with an older model without the feature, and with a smartphone or another device that does DLNA, fret not. After HTC outed Media Link
, now LG is taking the same step with the LG ST600 Smart TV Upgrade
(a long name, meant to insult your old TV), which allows you to stream content from your computer, smartphone or tablet with DLNA functionality, to the biggest screen in the house sans cables.
The box also has a built-in browser, and gives you access to some premium content, as well as runs LG's TV apps for things like language classes and gaming. The thing is equipped with a touch-enabled remote control unit, and USB port for attaching extra storage or a mouse. It should be available in the second quarter of 2011. That's a long time to wait, and other similar devices are entering the market right now, so LG better release the DLNA box for cheap. The company will be lifting the veil from the LG ST600 Smart TV Upgrade box at CES next week
, and we'll be there to cover the events, so hopefully we get around to play with it a little.
