People of Lava’s Android-Based TV
The first Android-based television set has been unearthed and it comes from an unknown Swedish hardware maker. The company is called People of Lava and the TV will be in beta testing later this summer. Available in 42, 47, and 55-inch models, the sets will be internet-connected and loaded with apps like YouTube, Google Maps, Weather, Time, Calendar, and of course an web browser. There’s no word yet as to whether or not we’ll see Google certifying the TV’s with Android Market access. Side loading apps from alternate sources could be a real pain in the butt and may not be worth the cost. With prices starting at $2,700 a piece, these Android-based TV’s are more than a little expensive.
