During MWC in Barcelona, ??Eric Schmidt, now the former CEO of Google, said that the new version of Android, Ice Cream, may merge with Honeycomb and Gingerbread, a proposal to offer users the best of both worlds.
Now, however, new information from the account that the Mountain View giant may come to plan an even bigger merger, integrating the Google TV functionalities within the Android platform and the first signs should be revealed at the Google IO 2011 that happens in the next 10 days and April 11th.
?That giant. Google TV is a huge opportunity for a television industry and integration with Android could be the leap that has been promised for decades, especially Internet TV, ?said the blog Phandroid.
Rumors also say that the delay in delivering the Honeycomb source code to developers would be directly linked to this fact. "If Google releases the source code now, and then launches the integration with Google TV, we will be looking at a new fragmentation between Gingerbread and Honeycomb."
Google TV is an open source project that can be integrated into set-top boxes, Blu-ray players and TVs and has its base developed on top of the Android platform, combined with the Google Chrome browser and Adobe Flash.
