Bloomberg is reporting that Sony will introduce their Android-based 'Google TV' at Google I/O. Remember, 'Google TVs' are TV sets that use Intel Atom chips and run an optimized Android OS. Having Android on a TV could very well be the solution to all our crappy TV UI's. It also could not.
What's kind of interesting, however, is that Sony is using a new version of Android called 'Dragonpoint' to power these TVs. We've never heard of Dragonpoint before, and though it sounds insanely cool, it's probably just code for Android optimized for TV usage. Or it could be awesome.
Basically, there's much to find out about these new Google TV sets and Google I/O is the perfect stage for it to be introduced. Considering the likes of Sony, Intel, and Google are involved, it has to be big. Google I/O is set for May 19th and 20th. We can't wait.
