When the TV was first invented the evolution was very slow, but over the past few years’ things have moved up a gear. If you were to buy a TV now, chances are they will be out of date in three months times. When we were informed last year that new Sony TVs will have Google TV built in, we were a little surprised, but they now show promise.
The reason we say we were surprised was the fact that Google seems to be partnering with everyone, and we had expected the likes of Samsung to be offered it first, as they are the world’s number one in TV sales. Sony know that they have ground to make up, so the idea of the television and Internet together at last is exciting.
Whenever you think of a Sony TV the first things that come in to your head is BRAVIA, quality and price. Two of those you would not want the consumer electronics maker to change, but the latter they have been working on, and the results speak for themselves.
Having a TV powered by Google opens the device up to so much more, and this is seen as the biggest evolutionary step yet, and that’s without the range of 3D TVs that Sony also has on the market.
2011 will be a big year for Sony, as they plan to launch an assault on not only the TV market, but also other areas of consumer electronics products.
Prices start at just $599.99, for the 24-inch version of the Sony Google TV, up to $ 1,399 .9 for the 46-inch model. There will be new models coming to market, but we have not details as yet. read our previous post looks at all the current models of Sony Google TVs.
Things are not all good for Sony and their obsession with Google TV and 3D, as they still do not have access to Hulu Plus. One thing we do know, it is so nice to see Sony come back fighting, too long has the likes of Samsung and LG had the market to themselves. Yes the likes of Panasonic and Sharp have great TVs on the market, but no one innovates like Sony.
What would it take for you to buy a Sony Google TV?
