Google TV to be Unveiled Next Month [Mashable]
I wrote earlier this week about Samsung's plans to implement a version of Google's Android operating system on their televisions. Now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google plans to introduce its Android-based OS for televisions and set-tops to the world next month. The Google I/O Conference, the company's gathering for 3,000 developers, is expected to be the venue where Google TV is unveiled.
The Journal indicates that Sony, Intel and Logitech are all partnering with Google for the introduction of the new OS. It's expected that developers will have an opportunity to design applications for the new OS that will run on the various broadband-connected televisions and set-tops that will run Google TV.
But while companies like Sony and Samsung look to try out Google's new product, they haven't taken the plunge in the way that Motorola did with mobile phones - converting the company's entire product line to the Google OS.
