Google’s Home Entertainment Center

Posted: February 14, 2012 in Technology

Google is not giving up on the consumer electronics market. Google TV was software intended to power smart TVs and other Web-connected devices and that effort has so far flopped. Then there was the Nexus One, the “Google Phone.”  The device was built by HTC and was also a commercial flop, but the Android operating system that powered the phone has been a huge hit for other carriers that offer the software in their handsets.

Now, Google is working on a home entertainment device that would “stream music wirelessly throughout the home” and be marketed under Google’s name. Last May, Google said it plans to put Android at the center of a host of electronically connected devices–everything from home lighting and irrigation systems to game controllers and keyboards. The company also said at the Google I/O event that the plans include a small Android device called Project Tungsten, which would connect to speakers and home stereo systems to stream music from Google’s new cloud-based music system.

Could this be the start to fight Apple in this market?  The product launch is set for sometime in 2012.

This is a great overview of some of the trends to keep up with in 2012.
