New rumor drops Sony Google TV prices
Sony's GT1 Google TV line should cost significantly less than expected if a leak is true. The 46-inch NSX-46GT1 would cost just $1,399, not the $1,899 originally expected. Many of the earlier quoted prices would be "several hundred dollars less," the Sony Insider source said.
The specifications for the Android-based sets themselves are still mostly unknown, other than that they will use a USB adapter for Wi-Fi and edge-based LED backlighting. At $1,399 for the largest set, it's doubtful that any of the sets will support 3D or more than a 120Hz refresh rate.
Sony will unveil the GT1 at its special event October 12 and may release them relatively quickly to seize on holiday sales.
