The New York Times this week is reporting that Google and Intel have been working companies such as Logitech and Sony for an initiative called Google TV which would develop a new generation of televisions and set-top boxes.

The newspaper reports that Google intends to develop an open TV platform which uses Intel Atom processors, runs the Android operating system and whose interface will be an Android version of the Chrome Web browser. The project has apparently been underway for some times, however, when representatives asked from Google, Intel and Logitech refused comment.

Insiders tell the Times that Google is not expected to deliver a toolkit to software developers for several months so it’s unlikely we'll see any product announcements for some time.
