Sony Google TV update coming soon

Despite lackluster fanfare, the software developers at Sony seemingly remain committed to adding value to the company's existing Google TV devices.

A tweet from the official Google TV twitter account indicates that a noteworthy update's coming to Sony's Google TV devices.

When the update lands this week, owners of the NSZ-GT1 Google TV/Blu-ray player will be able to watch 3D Blu-ray movies through the device. The new firmware update also speeds up the Google Chrome browser implemented in the aforementioned Internet TV box and Sony's short-lived NSX-24GT1, NSX-32GT1, NSX-40GT1, and NSX-46GT1 televisions with Google TV built-in. We assume the next generation of Sony Google TV devices (NSZ-GS7 and NSZ-GP9) will ship with this new functionality.

There's no word on whether the Chrome update will come to the discontinued Logitech Revue . With Logitech's history of cold-shouldering the device, it wouldn't surprise us if the company abandons any plans for future updates.
