After Google Search on TV, Now Google Wants Its Own Google TV
By on March 28th, 2010

Google, Sony and Intel have joined hands to bring a new concept called the Google TV to households. Google TV will allow users to surf through the Internet right from their television through specially designed set top boxes. Needless to say, these set top boxes will use the Android operating system. Given the news of Android booting in one second, the possibilities of this being true came closer to reality.

Google had earlier started experimenting TV search allowing users to use Google search on their televisions. This experiment was limited to Google employees. But now, Google sees a huge potential in another market into which it can expand- the television market. After the Internet, television is possibly the second largest community of dedicated users.

Logitech is also reported to be working with these three companies in manufacturing peripheral parts for this service. This includes specialized remotes and keyboards.

Surprisingly, all the companies involved are being unnecessarily secretive about this project. Google, Intel and Logitech have refused to comment on this whereas Sony has even refused being aware of any such project. However, all these companies are hiring for Android jobs which validate this news even further.
