Apps-driven Sony Internet TV with Google TV arrives

In yet another example of how the entire electronics market is becoming more applications-driven, Sony has introduced HDTVs based on the Google Android operating system. The HDTVs retail for $600 for a 24-inch model and range up to $1,400 for a 46-inch model. The new Sony TVs run Google TV, have WiFi for easy Internet connection, support downloadable apps, and are based on Intel’s Atom processor. There’s also a version that’s a TV-less set-top box with an integrated Blu-ray disc player that sells for $400. In the chart on Sony’s site you’ll see that “downloadable apps” is one of the major selling features of these new products. That’s the trend. That’s the future.
