Google TV’s growth might be slow, but it’s definitely not dead, especially since newer partners like LG and Vizio jumped onboard earlier in the year. Google I/O is all about development, and from looking at the lineup of sessions, Google really wants to show developers the benefits of Google TV apps.
I’m still a believer in Google TV so I’m hoping sessions like “Bring Your App To The Big Screen”, “Get Your Content On Google TV” and “Command and Control in Your Living Room: Building Second Screen App for Google TV” will spur developers into implementing some really special stuff.
I still think they need more standalone set top boxes. We know Vizio has one on the horizon, but they still haven’t announced a date. Maybe we will find out more at I/O, and hopefully it will at least have DLNA capabilities, which was lacking with the Logitech Revue.
