Android TV was first announced at Google I/O in June 2014. However, aside from the initial announcement, there has been little in the way of Android TV news since then – until now.
Sony decided to take the stage at CES 2015 in Las Vegas to announce a refresh to their Bravia line of Smart TVs with one difference – all their Smart TVs will be shipping with Android TV.
Android TV will bring Google Play to the Sony TVs. This will include apps and media streaming services such as Google Play Music All Access and Google Play TV & Movies. This comes with the slew of Google Play applications which are readily available on the Google Play Store. In addition, Hulu and Netflix are also available on the platform. Although it remains to be seen which of the services will be available with Sony’s Smart TVs when they launch internationally.
Sony Smartwatch 3 Goes Metal
The Sony Smartwatch 3 is the latest entry to the Japanese company’s line of wearables. It was announced late last year in August. The Smartwatch 3 came as a surprise during its announcement as it launched with Google’s own Android Wear platform. Something which was never announced.
The Sony Smartwatch 3 comes with a 1.6-inch 320×320 TFT LCD display with IP68 rating guaranteeing water and dust resistance. It was initially announces with the usual “classic” wristband. However, Sony announced the availability of a steel version of the device making it that much more stylish.
