It's finally here and it's cheaper than we expected.
Google TV is finally here in television form thanks to Sony's Internet TV. The functionality is similar to that of the Logitech Revue that was announced last week, but with a few minor changes.
For starters, the Google Internet TV won't need an Ethernet cord since it's got WiFi built right in. It also includes access to Qriocity, Sony's own digital delivery service. It's been hinted that Sony movies may hit Qriocity before they get to the competition, so this could be a big incentive to use the new service.
You can get Sony's Internet TV in four different sizes, only one of which breaks the thousand dollar mark.
The 46 inch NSX-46GT1 comes in at $1,399 and features LED edge lighting, as do the $999 40 inch model and the $799 32 inch model. The smallest in the series is a 24 inch set that uses CCFL backlighting yet still boasts a 1080p picture. You can pick up the NSX-24GT1 for $599.
You'll be able to pick up your own Sony Internet TV on October 16th when they launch at Sony Style stores, or slightly later when they'll be coming to Best Buy.
