Word's out that Sony, Intel, Google, and Logitech are collaborating on a new breed of Bravia HDTVs powered by Intel Atom processors, Android's software operating system, and a QWERTY remote control. This latest development may be the next evolution of TVs, which will further blur the line between home entertainment and computing.

With the added number-crunching power, these panels could support far more complex games and PC-centric programs beyond the current TV apps used primarily for delivering Web content. Personally, I think this is a much better proposition than 3D utilizing active shutter glasses.

We should have a better idea of Dragonpoint when it is unveiled at the Google I/O event in May, according to Bloomberg Businessweek. Till then, we can only dream of a truly all-in-one TV to rule the living room.
