Sony Electronics was showing off the final design of their new Internet TV (better known as the world’s first HDTV powered by Google TV) at IFA in Berlin and we filmed a quick 360 video of the hardware. Unfortunately no demos were being given, but at least we got to see what the entire TV set looked like.
Google TV services will be available on several devices, but the 46-inch Sony Internet TV is the exclusive launch partner so it’s the only HDTV you can purchase this fall. We are still waiting on pricing and availability. Those looking for a cheaper option should keep their eye on the Logitech Revue companion box.
We know some of the internal specs of the Internet TV, but Sony has kept quiet about the type of panel being used and expansion options. The demo units that were on display had their ports taped over, so we are not sure what they are hiding right now. If I had to guess, I would expect to see the 46-inch model debut around $2000-3000.
What do you think of the final design from Sony? How much would you be willing to pay for a HDTV powered by Google TV?
