LG BD690 Blu-ray Player: BD390 Successor

Something new that has been announced… a Blu-Ray Player that has in built WiFi, sounds pretty cool so we thought we would have a look at it. LG has certified a Blu-Ray player with WiFi status meaning that it has the capability to make a 1-1 link between its self and another peer.

We are thinking that the device will need to have some kind of software in built which will allow you to stream from other media inputs such as your phone or computer. If that is right then as Mari Silbey over at ZatzNotFunny.com about this being a great platform for WD TV Live Line is exactly right. Spot on Mari.

For those of you that are thinking that this is old technology and has been done before, this is slightly different, this is WiFi direct, device to device connections that are ad hoc. If you want to learn more about WiFi Direct then click here to be directed to wikipedia.

What do you think about this, is it worth while? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
