Android TV could possibly be here in the near future, thanks to Google, Intel and Sony. It appears that the three are in the early stages of designing set-top boxes and Internet-ready TV’s. Â Â As we all know, Google does not comment on any type of rumors.Â However, the claims are supported by a variety of positions recently opening at both Intel and Sony. Intel, for example, is looking for a Senior Application Engineer who can “extend Intel IA computing power and IA ecosystem from PC screen to mobile screen and TV screen.â€Â Furthermore, Logitech has reportedly been asked to create a keyboard and other accessories.
Hopefully, Google’s IO developer conference in May will hopefully shed more light on these developments. It is interesting to note that that Apple already has a set-top box product called â€œAppleTVâ€ that never really took off.Â Perhaps this is Google’s way of saying ” We will crush you.” Let’s just hope Apple doesn’t get their feelings hurt and pursue a lawsuit to try and save face.Â In the meantime, we can all look forward to the next Android experience.
