Google TV is going global, thanks to Sony. Via The Next Web:
Following its UK rollout, both devices will be introduced in Canada, Australia, France, Germany and Netherlands, with the NSZ-GS7 Internet player also becoming available in Brazil and Mexico.
The Sony NSZ-GS7 Internet player. Just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? Should be as easy to market as the awkwardly-named Apple TV.
Sony’s new set-top boxes will deliver Android apps, full Internet browsing capabilities and live video streams, formally signalling Google’s intention to takeover living rooms worldwide. With Samsung and LG pioneering embedded technologies within their next-generation televisions and Apple already enjoying limited success with the Apple TV, the launch of Google TV devices outside of the US has been a long time coming.
Also, the remote has buttons on three sides. And a “ctrl” button. Yup, they’ve really simplified the user experience this time around.
