Is it time for Google TV to make a comeback? With Google I/O starting this week, why not? Sony is choosing an opportune time to rekindle that fire, announcing today that its new NSZ-GS7 Internet Player with Google TV -- which was initially launched at CES -- will be shipping on July 16.


Pre-orders start today, with a $199 price tag at the helm. Furthermore, Google TV looks to be using this vehicle to go international, with the UK getting in on the action as well. Moreover, many other nations -- like France, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Germany -- should be seeing it ship in the coming months. No doubt, it's a slick looking box, but slick enough to make Google TV a thriving success?

I loved my 46" Sony Google TV. The tv quality was great (though no where near high end tv sets) but the googletv's functionality was great for what I wanted it for. I would only surf the net on my tv, play YouTube and pandora, and watch downloaded content from USB storage drives, all using wifi of course. It was pretty much a netbook built into the tv and I loved it. I don't care about the content search or content partners like Hulu etc I have all that through other devices. I sold my tv when I moved after owning it for a year. This is a much better solution now I can purchase a tv I actually want (Samsung all day every day) at 55" along with this box and I'm set.
