Connected TVs and internet setop boxes invading the living room since a while now. Google has not entered this field yet. Even Yahoo! has already a TV platform on the market. The New York Times reports that Google is working on a Google TV platform with Intel, Sony and Logitech.
Google TV will be powered by Android of course and is supposed to be open. Meaning you can surf any web site with a Google TV.
The Google TV project is supposed to be already in the works since several months. There is no official statement about Google TV from any of the involved parties.
I find a partnership of Sony and Logitech a bit weird as Sony is able to make their own remote controls and keyboards. In general a general purpose TV internet interface is not really rocking my boat as I rather prefer watching TV and surf on my notebook or maybe the Apple iPad in parallel.
I see the real value of internet enabled TVs in the ability to use services like Netflix, Pandora or iTunes for instance.
