SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Google believes it has come up with the technology to unite Web surfing with channel surfing on televisions.
To reach the long-elusive goal, Google has joined forces with Sony, Intel and Logitech. The companies were unveiling their much-anticipated plan for a "smart" TV on Thursday during a Google conference for about 5,000 software programmers.
The TVs are expected to go on sale in the fall. Pricing wasn't immediately announced.
Sony will make the TVs, which will rely on an Intel microprocessor. Google will provide the software, including its Android operating system and Chrome Web browser. Logitech will supply a special remote control and wireless keyboard.
Other companies have tried to turn televisions into Internet gateways with little success during the past decade.
