Google TV to connect with Android smartphones

Google's TV service will inter-connect with Android smartphones, with the devices used as remote controls and to transfer data and content.

The television service will launch this month on Sony and Logitech devices as part of the internet search giant’s drive to merge internet and television services.

Google's television software is being built into new Sony high-definition televisions and Blu-ray players and into Logitech set-top boxes that can be used with television sets. 

The system will also be able to inter-connect with Android smartphones, allowing users to transfer videos and other data from one device to another. Viewers will also be able to use their smartphones as remote controls.

Google’s television software will be made available to other manufacturers. Prices for the Sony and Logitech devices have yet to be announced.

‘One of our goals with Google TV is to finally open up the living room and enable new innovation from content creators, programmers, developers and advertisers,' Ambarish Kenghe, developer product manager for Google TV, said in a blogpost.
