LAS VEGAS -- LG has announced its penultimate LED for 2013, the LA7400, which will feature all of the latest tricks including new connectivity and search options.

Search and control are two of the company's new mantras and the TV will feature natural language voice control via the new Magic Motion remote .

The TV will feature an edge-lit LED with dimming, a 240Hz refresh rate and come in 47-inch, 55-inch and 60-inch sizes.

LG's Smart TV platform will also get an update with a customizable dashboard via the new "My Interest Cards." Sharing from tablets and smartphones has also been improved with WiDi (Intel) and Miracast http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57515750-93/airplay-challenger-miracast-launches-with-galaxy-s3-support/(Android's wireless competitor to AirPlay), plus MHL (wired), and pairing via NFC (near-field communication) . The new 'Tag On' feature will work like tapping phones together but instead the smartphone users taps against an NFC sticker on the TV.

The TVs also have an improved content recommendation engine called On Now that suggests content from on-demand and cable and satellite services via pop-up thumbnail images.

Pricing and availability are yet to be announced. See the rest of the 2013 LG range here
