Hot on the heels of Logitech’s Google TV plans comes leaked news of Sony’s web-TV roadmap. With a glitzy launch event planned for the 12th October in New York, Sony Insider appear to have grabbed details of what to expect from Sony’s partnership with the search giants.
They’re expecting for models to be revealed, the NSX-24GT1, NSX-32GT1, NSX-40GT1 and NSX-46GT1 screens at 24, 32, 40 and 46 inches respectively. Prices will start at $1299.99 for the smallest screen and raise to $1899.99 for the 46 inch model.
Much like Logitech’s Revue set-top box, priced at a reasonable $299.99, Sony Insider are reporting that Sony will have their own cheaper add-on to convert regular HDTVs into Google TVs. They’re stating a model number of NSZ-GT1 for Sony’s set top box, but are also listing that it may feature an eject button, suggestive of DVD or Blu-ray playback.
We’ll be able to confirm or dismiss these rumours come that October 12th launch date, so check back to Tech Digest then.
