Google TV had a second coming-out party at CES 2012, where a number of manufacturers introduced new features for the television-based operating system, new devices running it, and other big plans. Eric Schmidt, in a fit of what turned out to be insanity, declared shortly before CES that Google TV would be on a "majority" of new TVs by this summer. Well, that didn't happen. But there is a wave of new Google TV devices ready to hit the market, led by the Sony NSZ-GS7 set-top box. Sony previously sold only TVs with Google TV baked in, but the $199 GS7 adds the OS to the TV you already own. (There's also the $299 NSZ-GP9, which includes a Blu-ray player as well.) It features a new, more powerful processor, and thanks to Google's frequent updates, a hugely improved operating system with more apps, more features, and a simpler interface. Do the new hardware and new software work together to create a Google TV finally worth watching? Read on. Hardware / design All I ask of a set-top box is that it slide easily and unnoticed into the stack of boxes and gadgets next to my TV.
Internet TVs sound like a great idea but nobody's nailed it yet. So instead of using the stilted Internet features on a smart TV, here's Google TV: a one size fits all Internet TV package. Contained in this box from Sony, Google TV software opens your television to the vast wealth of Android apps that already exist. The Sony NSZ-GS7 Internet Media Player with Google TV is a small box that sits under your television and acts as a portal to the web and to Android apps. It's available to pre-order now and on sale on 16 July. The Internet Media Player costs around £200. It will be followed -- eventually -- by the NSZ-GS7 3D Blu-ray Player with Google TV in October, for around £300. Sony has no plans to build Google TV into a telly at this stage, so it's one more box under your screen. Great, another box to cram in under your telly. The views below and the score above are based on our US sister site CNET.com's review. As soon as we get hold of a Sony NSZ-GS7 with a reassuringly British three-pin plug, we'll update this page accordingly.Inside is a dual-core processor, powerful enough to surf the web, play videos and watch live TV -- all at the same time.
