It could be seen as pretty partnership among Sony, Intel and Google when the three giant companies have recently announced to develop Sony television sets which could be connected to the Internet, so that TV viewers could easily watch the vast trove of information and entertainment offerings available on the Web.
Intel advertises that its chips will help the new generation of TV sets be smarter and more predicting.
The new operating system Android of Google has been highly evaluated for its ability to run on different types of gadgets, including smart TVs. It also means that an application which is written for one Android device could be also changed to be compatible with others.
It is reported that Google, Intel and Sony are about to make a deal to produce what is so-called smart TVs. The deal announcement could be stated as early as this week in Google’s annual software developer conference held in San Francisco.
It is strongly hoped that the deal will be able to make sense for the trio.
It is certain that the giant chip maker Intel also gets benefit from the deal as the Web-accessing televisions reportedly would rely to some extent on Intel’s small, energy-efficient Atom microprocessor, which Intel is counting on to extend its marketing reach beyond personal computers. On the other hand, the giant electronic company Sony can also boost up its business by offering a smarter lineup of TVs and further its goal to interconnect home electronic gadgets.
