Google officially unveiled Google TV at its Google I/O conference.
Google is teaming up with Intel, Sony and Logitech for Google TV. The device is not designed to replace your cable or satellite box, but work alongside it: The goal is to be able to view web content and television content side-by-side from the same interface.
This concept is not new; companies like TiVo and Boxee have been attacking this space for quite some time. Google’s approach isn’t dissimilar to what TiVo is doing with TiVo Premiere, but Google has the brand-recognition and capital to potentially make mainstream adoption a reality.
