"Tablets may get the most attention, but far more TVs will be sold in 2011 and they'll increasingly connect to the Web and run software applications. Maybe we should think of them as huge iPads hanging on the wall." ---Seattle Times

The Consumer Electronics Show is nearly here. Make way Google, move over Apple! Microsoft Windows TV is here. According to Seattle Times, Microsoft offers an enhanced and connected TV experience right at the comforts of your home.

As Seattle Times noted:

“Tablets may get the most attention, but far more TVs will be sold in 2011 and they’ll increasingly connect to the Web and run software applications. Maybe we should think of them as huge iPads hanging on the wall.”

True to speak, the Internet TV craze is increasing. It’s like hitting two birds with one stone. Who would have thought that one day TV and Internet will be intertwined?

The Times said that these boxes will be under the power of Microsoft’s Windows Embedded platform and use the Windows Media Center interface. The TV sets have price tags of $200 price point.

One more thing, the ARM processors will be revealed at CES 2011 which was reported by NY Times and The WSJ last year. It says that the newest version of Windows could at least be two years out and that the company aims for the full version of OS to ARM devices. In other words, this is different.

If this rumor is true, then finally, there is contender to compete against Apple TV, Boxee and Google TV.

“We will not be announcing a Toshiba TV or Blu-ray player or demonstrating the products at C.E.S. We have an understanding with Google about the future product roadmap and will bring the right product out at the right timeframe.” ---Jeff Barney, vice president of Toshiba’s digital products division.

People will not get the chance to have the first look on the new Google TV next month on CES 2011. Unfortunately, Google asked for a few more time before from its partners–Toshiba, LG Electronics and Sharp. The Consumer Electronics Show will take place this January in Las Vegas. According to New York Times, Google needs to tweak the software a little bit to make it perfect for launch.

As of the moment, only Sony and Logitech are the ones who are actually selling the Internet TVs. Samsung and Vizio are supposed to reveal their Google TV devices at CES 2011 opted to go with simultaneous launches with Toshiba, Sharp and LG’s sets.

“We will not be announcing a Toshiba TV or Blu-ray player or demonstrating the products at C.E.S.,” said Jeff Barney, the vice president of Toshiba’s digital products division. “We have an understanding with Google about the future product roadmap and will bring the right product out at the right timeframe.”
