The beauty of Android is that it is powerful, flexible and customisable enough to run more than just smartphones and tablets. You can throw in televisions, PMP’s, cameras and even refrigerators if you look hard enough. If you’re a UK based Android enthusiast, chances are you’ve been looking enviously across the pond at our state-side friends with their fancy Google TV‘s and Google TV set top boxes. The good news is that very shortly you’ll be able to see what all the fuss is about as Sony is set to launch the NSZ-GS7 Internet Player in the UK and US simultaneously from July 22nd. Sony and Google have also confirmed that the device will also launch in Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Mexico and the Netherlands shortly thereafter. The nifty little box and innovative universal remote will set you back a cool £200 in the UK and $200 in the US.
It’s fair to say that the small selection of Google TV set top boxes have received mixed reviews so far however it’s still nice to finally have the option here in the UK. I’d also say it’s a safe bet we’ll get a look at the future of Google TV at the Google I/O in two days time.
