Google has been trying to penetrate the smart TV market for a couple of years now, to no great success. But it's not giving up and it seems to be inspiring at least some to follow, as it's now gotten a new hardware maker to build a Google TV device.The Netgear NeoTV PRIME will be the top device in the NeoTV family and it's the only one that comes with Google TV built in.
It should retail for $130, €99, cheaper than some Google TV boxes, but more expensive than others. You get a rather compact dual-sided remote and everything that's part of the Google TV experience, Chrome, voice search, YouTube, apps, movies and music via the Play Store and so on.
Of course, like with all the other Google TV devices, you get access to most on-demand services out there Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, HBO Go, Crackle, Flixster, Rhapsody, Pandora and others, as long as they're available in your country of course.
You can also plug in a USB stick to play whatever you want or connect to other devices on the local network via the DLNA standard.
