Bloomberg: Sony to Announce Android-Based Dragonpoint TV at Google I/O
Bloomberg is reporting today that Sony is expected to unveil their new televisions based off a new version of Android called Dragonpoint. We’re going to go ahead and say this name will be a play on words “Drag N’ Point”. The name alone already has us conjuring up ideas of pointing and dragging icons, apps, and typing with a keyboard that uses dragging. Swype anyone?
Google, Intel, and Sony have been working together for quite some time to bring the world a “Google TV”. They’ve also been partnering up with Logitech to develop a keyboard that doubles as a remote control. The television is built using Intel’s Atom processor which is a scaled down version of their PC chips. This “Smart TV” experience will tie Internet access and other web-based services together and offer more advanced television guides.
