Intel’s Chief Paul Otellini Says Google TV due this Month

Posted by at 2:51 pm on September 9, 2010

Intel chief Paul Otellini in an  interview with the Wall Street Journal  (sub. required)  today said the first  Google TV devices should start shipping in September. He didn’t say whether it would be the  Logitech Revue or Sony’s Bravia TVs.

Otellini felt that Jobs took a “step backward” by making the AppleTV less of a computer-like device. Google TV would be better since it was the “full Internet” melded with traditional TV.   It uses a variant of Android that supports third-party apps but centers most on a full Chrome browser with Flash support that should theoretically allow most web video.

The CEO still thought the Apple TV could co-exist with Google TV but that the two would appeal to different audiences.   Apple’s hub would be useful for Otellini’s mom because it’s “simplistic,” he contended, while Google’s would appeal to those who wanted more.
