WSJ: Google getting into hardware business with entertainment device
Here we go again! Google is rumored once more to be getting into the hardware business. A new Wall Street Journal report tells us that Google has been working on a consumer electronics device with a home music streaming system set to debut later in the year. According to their source, Google plans to market the system under their own brand. Sounds like this is more confirmation of those rumored entertainment devices that broke early in the week.
It is being said that the Android team has been working on the music streaming system for several years now and that it will likely take on Apple’s Airplay, Sonos, and Logitech’s Squeezebox. It’s not hard to envision the finished product being all that different from the Project Tungsten stuff demo’d at last year’s Google IO. As to what the device is being called remains to be seen; AndroidAndMe is hearing that it could be called Android Hub.
Wonder if the Motorola merger has anything to do with the forthcoming product.
More on this as we can gather it!
