Sony Internet TV Nabs Google TV Update

Google TV. Remember that? Just kidding. While Google TV certainly hasn't been as popular as something like Gmail, it's a product that Google still seems interested in improving. This week, Sony announced a software update to the Google TV platform that powers the Sony Internet TV Blu-ray Disc player. This latest version not only powers existing Google TV features, but also adds the Android Market for apps. It'll roll out to connected Sony Internet TV devices by early next week.

Today’s update brings a simpler and clean interface, improved performance, better search functionality and the Android Market to all currently installed Sony Internet TV and Sony Internet TV Blu-ray owners. Additionally, future consumers of Sony Internet TVs and Blu-ray Disc players will receive the update during the initial start-up installation. Other new benefits include better integration with Android and iOS devices, like smartphones and tablets.

So, you buying one now? Or, if you own one, are you more amped about it?
