Google unveiled Google TV at the Google I/O last year.
Google is launching today the Google I/O 2011 Developer conference. Last year Google unveiled the Google TV platform. So far sales and also reviews of Google TV devices have been disappointing. Google is expected to release a new version this summer. It is not expected that Google is already at the point to reveal the new Google TV version today.
The first Google TV release tried to change the way we watch TV with the Search your Television notion. I guess the new version will be more a platform that enhances a TV with features and not a search box. I assume it will in the end look more like the Samsung Smart TV platform. You get all the media services like Netflix and you can customize your TV with apps.
We expect tons of announcements and news today from the Google I/O conference. One announcement got already spilled by Google. Google will launch a music locker service in beta today.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
