Report: Google TV coming to Europe in September – Engadget
Sony is making some more definitive statements on its plans to bring Google TV across to Europe. According to financial paper, Les Échos, Sony Frances marketing director said that two devices, a set-top box, priced at €200 $266 and a Blu-ray player, selling for €300 $399, will launch in France this September. The paper reports that it could launch across the UK, Spain and Germany at the same time. Sonys Stephane Labrousse added that remotes for the new devices would also include a dedicated Android Market Google Play button to access the Android progenitors apps and media content. The Japanese manufacturers own Music Unlimited service will also be baked inside. Phew. Theres no word just yet on whether these are the older Intel-based models or the new, possibly cheaper, ARM range set to ship later this year. However, we expect to hear plenty more noise from Sony on its Smart TV intentions over the next few months.
