Google to Unveil Android-Based Google TV in May?
Will Google unveil an open source, Android-Based Google TV at the Google I/O conference?
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google plans to unveil an Android-based ‘Google TV’ at the Google I/O conference, which runs in May in San Francisco.
According to the article, Intel and Sony are also involved in the platform, which is rumoured to be open source, in keeping with the Android operating system. “(Google) hopes the move will spur the same outpouring of creativity that consumers have seen in applications for cellphones,” reads the Wall Street Journal article.
The Wall Street Journal are predicting that we may see a Google TV toolkit within the next couple of months, with products based on the software appearing as early as this summer. Apparently, Google has already built a prototype set-top box, but it is still under consideration whether the technology will be incorporated directly into TVs or other devices.
