Sharp announced during its CES 2013 keynote that it’s introducing dual-core processors into all of its connected TVs released this year. It will also launch iOS and Android remote control applications, include built-in Wi-Fi and offer the “best apps” on the televisions. A new “split screen TV and web” feature allows you to watch TV and surf the web at the same time. In other words, you can watch the Lakers game and surf TechnoBuffalo at the same time.
The remote control feature for iOS and Android allows you to flick photos, videos, music and other features right to your TV for showing off the media to friends and family. A Netflix “second screen” feature allows you to find a phone to watch on your smartphone and then play it on your Sharp AQUOS TV immediately.
A wallpaper mode turns the television into “your home’s largest digital photo frame.” Sharp is also integrating a built-in subwoofer with Yamaha signal processing for bass and new thin designs with brushed aluminum materials for the frame around the screen.
