Google TV is launching – the ultimate media streamer?

Google just launched GoogleTV, a new platform for using from the coach: Google TV that will combine our good old content with Web content, Android applications into one  little set top box.

“TV meets web. Web meets TV” is the slogan Google is going with for this new endeavor.

Your Android will be able to control the TV as well as push a movie from the phone to the big screen and watch it there. Also, since everything is built on the Android platform we should expect thousand of applications to soon be available to use on your TV.

All in all, the new platform is a very serious contender to hot 2010 media streamers as PopBox and Boxee or YahooTV widgets (which is probably going to fade soon). More competition is always good and the winner will be as usual the consumer. The service is expected to be launched in the fall and the main partners will be Intel, Logitech and Sony. Dish Network also has plans for a Google TV enabled box and Best Buy wants to sell as many as they can, of course.
