While Google has been an undoubted success with its Android smartphone operating system, which has had more limited success when trying to expand into tablets. If the tablet market has proven difficult to crack for the search giant, then it is probably safe to say that Google TV is what some call an unadulterated failure.
Aimed at bringing the power of Internet to the living room, Google TV came in two flavors.
First, was the set top box, which we were lucky enough to Logitech. Call the magazine, the box was a colossal failure for both Google and the end of Logitech, not just through the sale price to the point of incomprehensible $ 300.
Google TV game also built into some TVs from major brands, with Sony leading the charge. Again, take was minimal.
Like a child who refuses to learn to play the hot fire will make your finger sore, Google is making another step in the set top box market, with Google TV 2. 0 pack a little more power than its predecessor.
Sporting and downloadable applications that run on a modified version of Honeycomb flavor of Android, Google TV 2.0 offers a much needed coat of paint to a user interface that even Steven Hawking may have trouble getting your head around.
New images of the next version has been shown to be by ZatzNotFunny, and seems to show that the Android Market in all its glory.
Google is putting its hopes on the people who want TV on their applications, although it remains to be seen if that's what people want real, or whether it is another of the characteristics desired by geeks and technorati. Google is running the risk of taking an already overly complicated and making it more difficult for the average user to enter?
There is currently no specific word on that Google TV 2.0 will be released, presumably with a download available for those who already have the misfortune of the necessary hardware.
In terms of hardware, Google is believed to be in search of new partners, but with Sony and Logitech's experience is less than very well so far, I do not think that companies are lining up to jump on this bandwagon in particular new .
