Sony TVs with Google to be Announced in May

share on:

Sony Corp. is expected to announce new TVs May 19 or 20 that use Google software and Intel chips to allow viewers to access the web from the TV, says Bloomberg quoting two sources familiar with the matter.
The new TVs will likely use an Atom chip running a new version of Android called Dragonpoint. Also Logitech is developing a keyboard for the TV, which could double as a remote control, said the report.
Sony is attempting to win back TV market share it has lost to Samsung and Intel is trying to migrate its chips to devices other than PCs. Sony now ranks third in the TV market that’s led by Samsung and LG.
