Google Will Reportedly Enter Entertainment Device Biz

The New York Times is reporting that Google is at work on a new home entertainment device that will deliver content to consumers.

This news would mean that Google would be competing with Apple and Amazon in both the device and the home entertainment space, trying to create its own ecosystem.

Here is more from the NY Times about what the device will look like: “While Google has talked openly about its designs on consumers’ living rooms, news that the device was becoming a reality surfaced last week in an application the search giant filed with the Federal Communications Commission. In the application, Google said it would begin testing a device it labeled simply an ‘entertainment device.’ The device will have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and, as Google noted in the application, it will ‘connect to other home electronics equipment.'”
