Sony and Intel to reveal "DragonPoint" powered Google TV?


google TV old.jpgLike some sort of tech Holy Trinity, Sony, Intel and Google are rumoured to be working together on a Google TV, with official details of the project expected to be revealed next month.

All three companies are scheduled to meet for a conference organised by Google over the 19th and 20th of May. While there are no confirmed products for the conference as yet, analysts are predicting that the partnership will produce a web and apps enabled TV, running Google’s Android OS.

Reports are coming in that the Sony TVs will run on a customised Atom chip, codenamed “DragonPoint“, with a version of Android specifically tailored to couch-bound users. Alongside this news, Logitech are also said to be working on a remote control/keyboard hybrid to navigate the TV and its many potential functions.

Samsung executives also recently revealed they too are keen to develop a TV built around Google’s Android OS.
