Even though it has been reported by the New York Times that Google has asked some television manufacturers to hold up their plans to unveil TVs powered by Google TV at next month's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the company that makes the only Google TV set-top box claims that reports it has also been asked by Google to stop production are not true. The Times' report indicated that Google asked for the CES delay in order to make updates to Google TV.
Google TV is the search giant's attempt to merge traditional television with broadband video in an Android-based operating system for televisions and set-tops. Logitech and Sony were Google's first device partners for Google TV, and are expected to be joined in the coming months by a number of other TV manufacturers.
For its part, Logitech indicates that any updates to Google TV on its Revue set-top can be pushed to the device via its broadband connection, so there's not a need to halt production to load a new version of the software.
