In May, Google introduced Google TV, an Internet-enabled TV platform that will be available this fall in devices from Sony and Logitech. Sony will sell HDTVs and Blu-ray players with Google TV capabilities, while Logitech will sell a companion box that can be hooked into existing hardware.
At the time, Sony chief executive Sir Howard Stringer said the company was “fairly giddy with excitement” about working with Google and pledged to “expand into other hardware and beyond.”
Google CEO Eric Schmidt said recently that Google TV was still on track for a fall release, but the company has not yet made any formal announcements about an exact launch date.
