Google TV remote is one big “keyboard”
The upcoming launch of Google TV, might have a mighty remote in store for you. The latest leaked images of a Sony made Google TV unit show an accompanying a key-heavy remote control.
While it might be very necessary to have so many keys considering you are going to use whole web on TV and you might need to enter test and stuff, but it is going to be a big let down on the user experience part.
According to Engadget, the remote for Sony Google TV has:
Two circular directional pads, a QWERTY keyboard, volume, channel selection, some play / pause buttons… everything you’d need to rock the web and video all at once. That’s about all we can say at this point, but man does October 12th look even more painfully far away.
