The TV set runs Android 1.5 and has its own app store for downloading apps specific to a TV. There are only about 20 apps available right now, though over 1,000 are expected to be available by the end of 2010. It's unfortunate it apparently access the Android Market but at least it comes with a browser, Facebook, YouTube, and Google Maps.
The remote for the TV has an integrated QWERTY keyboard and there are plans for an app that will let users control the set with their Android phone. People of Lava will have quite a battle on their hands with the Google TV already available though at the same time it might convince consumers to consider a TV that does more than the current options.
