Google TV is a conceptualized Smart TV that combines Internet and Web 2.0 features along with the standard television set features and the set-top box. Google, Sony, Intel, and Logitech worked together to develop this product platform. Google TV offers media streaming and interactive content to the users in real time. Though the concept did not materialize well enough to attract the consumers, the latest OS version of Google TV has made a considerable impact. Apart from Lenovo, various electronics manufacturers such as Samsung, Sony, LG, and others are also busy developing their products on the new OS.
