The image appears to substantiate claims made to the Journal that LG will retain the ‘cards’ system resembling a stacked pop-up screen from the original incarnation of webOS — which LG acquired from HP in February 2013. The navigation will include apps for Twitter, YouTube, Skype, Facebook and other services, according to the image.
Along with the leaked Fitbit-like Lifeband Touch, it seems LG has plenty in store for CES. We’ll find out more when the event starts next week.
