Sony to announce Android Dragonpoint TVs at Google I/O

Reports of a Google TV service have slowing been coming in since March and now it looks like Google will unveil all the details at next month’s Google I/O.

Bloomberg is reporting that Sony, Intel, and Google plan to discuss their new line of home-entertainment devices in San Francisco on May 19 and May 20. Sony will make the TVs, Intel will provide the Atom chips to power them, Google will deliver the software, and Logitech is working on a special keyboard accessory.

The first Google TV will run a new version of the Android operating system called Dragonpoint. It is likely based on the Froyo build (Android 2.2) and will have full Flash 10.1 support out of the box.

Google I/O just got a little bit more interesting. Check back May 19th for full coverage as we will be onsite to report all the latest details.

    I bought a nice 47″ TV back almost three years ago. Unless it can really do something really compelling I can’t see my love for Google making me buy a new TV.

    Having said that I am interested.

    Please, no keyboard, please! I want to navigate Google Map on a 60″ TV using gesture (something like Xbox’s natal would be great.)

      Nice suggestion, but what about text input? My arms would get so tired gesturing, “The Adventures of Pete & Pete season 3 episode 4″.

        The keyboard could always have voice input I bet. Google is getting pretty good with their voice transcriptions on Android.

    Im scarred. Google supports some of the most invasive ads Ive ever seen. Im afraid Id be forced to wait while an ad plays when first turning on the TV, etc. Or ads might pop up in a corner every hour or so. Not that TV is any more than 5% of actual shows. Im still anxous to see what they’ve got.

    Great news! And even better news for Flash. It will revolutionise on-screen TV EPG graphics and hopefully feature the first good app store for TV.
