Google working with Intel, Sony on TV project: report

Google Inc is working with Intel Corp and Sony Corp to develop a new class of Internet-enabled televisions and set top boxes, according to a media report. The effort, known as Google TV, has been under way for several months and is based on Google’s Android software which is currently available in certain smartphones, according to a report in the New York Times on Wednesday citing people with knowledge of the project. Logitech International is also involved and is developing peripheral devices, such as a tiny keyboard. According to the report, the partners hope to make it easy for consumers to use Web applications like Twitter on their TVs and to entice software developers to create new applications to run on Google TV. Google has begun testing the set top box technology with Dish Network, the Times said.
