Droid Incredible Launch and Sony's Android TV

ADVERTISEMENTS

Might be the first Android promise kept by Verizon in a while, but it seems that the HTC Incredible or otherwise no known as the Droid Incredible, (I don’t like the sound of ‘Droid Incredible’) has begun shipping as promised.  The successor to the the very popular Motorola Droid is also available for purchase online and in Verizon retail stores.  Although there are already solid reports that Verizon is already all sold out of the Incredible.  The next round of shipments will be on May 4th.  I just noticed that Amazon is still offering the Droid Incredible, at a really incredible price of $99 with a new 2-year agreement.  That’s about $100 cheaper that what Verizon is offering, so if you’re still looking to get your hands on one, you might wanna check out Amazon right now! android based SONY TV at I/O

I’m sure some of you have heard about the possibility of Android powered televisions.  Actually a Swedish company named LAVA, just announced a few weeks ago that they will be offering the first HD Android-based TV set in Sweden, starting this summer.  But for something that might be a little closer to home, there is news today that Sony will be announcing that they will also be making an Android based TV.  The announcement will come at the upcoming Google I/O conference in a few weeks.  It seems Sony is trying to win back their share of the TV market, which they have lost recently to the competition.  Various home entertainment devices based on the Android platform, are expected to show at I/o 2010.  There are no real details on exactly what Sony will be displaying, but the leak says that the devices will be powered by Intel’s ATOM processors.  This might be the start of the official Google TV, but nobody knows for sure what Google and Sony have in-store for us at the conference.  We will have coverage of Google I/O 2010 right here @BlogsDNA
