Google TV Launches this Fall

More details emerge during Google’s I/O conference about the upcoming TV service from Google. Google, Sony, Intel, Logitech, Adobe, Logitech, and DISH Network are ready to ride the on the new platform.

Sony will be first out of the gate with a Google TV powered device, with its “Sony Internet TV” devices — in the form of either an HDTV or a set-top box with Blu-ray player — arriving on shelves this fall. The rest of the partners were just as the rumors indicated, with Logitech adding a QWERTY Harmony remote, “companion box” to bridge the gap to existing home theater equipment and eventually video chat capabilities, Intel providing the CE4100 Atom processor at the heart of the devices and an Android 2.1 OS with Chrome browser brings it all together.
