A few days ago we mentioned that Google were working on a new project — Google TV — but we did not have much information then. However, we have since learned that Google are teaming up with Sony and Intel on this new Web content device for your living room.
Google TV will be a set-top box and will run on Google’s Android OS. The New York Times reports that a version of the Chrome browser will be used for web applications — these include Picasa and Twitter. The idea with Google TV is to make use of smartphone apps and bring them into your living room.
PC World understands that there are a number of questions being asked, and they aim to give us all the answers. So below you will see five of the most asked question about this new product from the search engine giant.
The five questions are:
- Is Google TV really a platform or a product?
- How viable is Web browsing in the living room?

If you visit PC World you will find all the answers that you are looking for. One thing is certain, Google are not content in just competing with Apple in the smartphone market — they now what a piece of its Apple TV as well.
