The main idea behind this project is to make web apps like Twitter, Gmail, online high-quality video streaming etc accessible in your TV using the remote control. In simple words, it will bring the web to your living room and exploring the web will be as easy as changing the channels of the TV using a remote control.

The three companies have tapped Logitech to make the peripheral devices such as speakers and remote controls including a remote with a tiny keyboard which can help you navigate the web easily. According to sources, the three companies have refused to comment on this and said that they have no idea about this project.

Reports also suggest that the project started several months back and was described by people who have knowledge that the company is planning to launch an Android-based TV in collaboration with Sony, Intel and Logitech.

All we can do right now is wait and see whether all these rumor about the Google TV are correct or not. What do you people think about this under cover project of Google?
