According to GTVsource and Phandroid, Google is hard at work to merge Google TV and Honeycomb into the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Google is expected to make an announcement at Google I/O in five weeks. This will of course make it easier to maintain and update the three different products. Having a unified platform will also make Android a much stronger and full-featured OS.

Details are scarce, but a handful of ideas come to mind if Google were to merge these three different Android branches. Google could bake Google TV right into Ice Cream, making every new Android phone a potential Google TV box. Many Android phones are already sold with accessories to connect to your TV, why not make Google TV appear when you dock them. Much like Car mode pops up when you connect it to a car dock. Why stop there? Throw Chrome OS in there as well and pop it up when the phone is connected to a laptop dock. Again, the possibilities are endless and I bet Google won’t disappoint us at this year’s Google I/O. What do you guys want out of this freaky three-way Google is planning?
