Google TV Next Month, Boxee In November

itwbennett writes “In a WSJ interview, Intel CEO Paul Otellini said that ‘Google TV starts shipping this month.’ Although, as blogger Peter Smith notes, ‘Exactly which devices he means isn’t clear. Sony TVs and the Logitech Revue will be the first out so if he is referring to a finished consumer project, he’s referring to one or the other of those, but as CNET points out, he might be referring to product shipping to retail rather than being on sale to consumers this month. Either way, it looks like you’ll be able to have Google TV in your living room by sometime in October at the latest.’ What, if anything does this mean for the Boxee Box, which is still due in November? ‘If Google is out there first, and puts marketing muscle behind Google TV (and of course they’re including it built into some televisions) it might be hard for Boxee to find its niche,’ says Smith. ‘Particularly with that bizarre form factor that won’t fit anywhere.’”
