Way back in April, Swedish manufacturer People of Lava began drumming up hype around their new television sets deploying Android as their operating system. Half a year later and after the release of Google TV the company is upping the ante with a big old 55-inch set. Problem is it runs Android 1.5 along with its own custom app store.
The company argues that Google TV legitimizes their offering and should boost sales, but we will leave that claim open to debate. This thing will se you back 4,257 euros. Not cheap, and not the deep integration Google TV affords. If I were someone at People of Lava I’d start hitting up big G to let them in on their TV software.
