Google TV getting Honeycomb 3.1 and Android Market

Just announced at Google I/O, the much maligned Google TV product will get an update to Honeycomb 3.1 this summer, and Android Market is coming along for the ride.

Since it's release at last year's I/O event, Google TV has seen setbacks from content owners blocking access via Google TV, as well as from Google when they abruptly delayed the software for "software tweaks" in December of last year.

The announcement didn't include any content partner announcements, but the addition of Android Market, as well as the ability to develop apps for Google TV should provide a much needed shot in the arm for the device. Content owners will now be able to create their own apps to access their services, and we all know how much content owners crave control.

Sony, Vizio, Logitech and Samsung were all listed as device partners but no information on device availability was given beyond summer of this year.

I'm a 40 something early adopter of all things technology. I was first in line to buy both my original Verizon Droid and my Apple iPad 1. I don't hate your phone or tablet choice, but I've probably got an opinion about it. Aside from my family, the only things that I love more than a new gadget are fly fishing and going to the ballpark. Ocassionaly I find a way to blog about both. Though I'm only one more Foxconn story away from being fired, I've been writing for Android Headlines since March 2011.
