Sony Google TV HDTVs and Blu-ray player launch details revealed

Engadget: Straight from Sony's Google TV unveiling in New York we finally know the official details of its plans, which include four HDTVs (24-, 32- , 40- and 46-inch) with prices from $599 to $1,399, plus a funky white set-top box with built-in Blu-ray player for $399. The 24-inch is a CCFL backlit LCD, while the larger models all feature edge LED lighting, while all of them feature built in WiFi, so no need to go stringing any new network cables to the living room

Like Microsoft, it will have one core product (and whatever piggybacks on it in the same space) that will keep it alive as it repeatedly fails to bring innovative new products to the market in other areas.

Android and it's apps are a crappy, unreliable, and ugly alternative to what you get on the Iphone/Ipod.

Google TV is simply a me-too product which looks awkward to use and, so far, seems horribly over-priced.

Goog411, remarkably, worked pretty well (usually) but lost a lot of money so it's being cancelled

Google Apps, not doing so well. Doesn't work too well either with sporadic outages, lag, etc.

Google EMR ... any doctor who ever used it deserves to be sued for malpractice. Anyway, it's gone.

There will be more.

I really don't have any experience with any of the products you described except for my experience with android on the samsung fascinate it is a very good OS. After using my buddies iphone for a limitied amount of time, I would even say it is better than the iphone OS.

The apps on android are anything but crappy and unreliable. I'm not sure what phone you are using, but i have had nothing but great experiences with android apps.

Iphone OS is basically an apps list that until recently could only run one program at a time.

I'd really like to hear your specific resons for disliking Android. It seems you only have one bubble (lol) but you could PM me.

So why was PS3 compatibility not announced, especially considering they already have something planned for it with Qriocity.

Sony refers to it as "Sony Internet TV"
Google calls it "Google TV"?
I don't know what to use, the software platform name or the hardware one...
And is using an Intel CE4100?
Might as well call it intel sony google mega jesus 2000, damn...
While Toshiba is using the Cell in the new Regza line.

What does it all mean??
Oh lord, give me a *ucking sign...

PS:Resistance is futile
