We knew it was coming, but today Hisense made the news official by showing off two new Google TVs.
The XT780 line comes in 55-inch and 65-inch models. With these two TVs you get access to an array of Google products like Chrome, search, YouTube, Google Play, etc., as well as other services you'd want on your tube like Netflix and Pandora. It also might solve some of your TV frustrations, with a double-sided remote that includes a full keyboard. On top of that, these televisions want you to multi-task, because you're going to be doing that anyway—it has a multi-screen feature so you can troll Facebook while say, watching Dexter. Not that you need anymore encouragement to do that.
Hisense also served up a glasses-free 3DTV, as well as some incremental updates to its regular old smart TVs, which aren't really all that exciting. But Hisense is doing some interesting things and is a relatively new player in the U.S. market, and it has our attention.
