LG to Bundle Kaixin001 App with Smart TVs, 11/15/11

Chinese SNS site partnered with LG recently to bundle the smart TV client for Kaixin001 with LG TV sets. The smart TV application UI was developed independently from the PC and mobile client interfaces. Once users have logged in using their Kaixin001 credentials, they will be able to browse online friends, view and repost updates, and browse and rate profiles through their televisions.

A spokesperson for Kaixin001's business development division revealed that the company would partner more closely with LG in the future, adding that Kaixin001 had established relationships with major television makers around the world. Samsung and LG have already released displays featuring the Kaixin001 client, and Sharp and Sony are at work on new products. Domestically, Kaixin001 is in talks with Changhong (600839.SH), TCL Multimedia (1070.HK), and Konka (200016.SZ, 000016.SZ) at present.
