CES 2012: Take a First Look at the Sony NSZ-GP9 Blu-ray player and Google TV

1:36 /

The Sony NSZ-GP9 Blu-ray player is a 3D Blu-ray player with unique functionality, which can be paired with the Sony NSZ-GS7 to offer Google TV's connected services.

Hey guys. It's Sharon Vaknin for CNET.com, here at CES 2012, checking out Sony's NSZ-GP9 Blu-ray player. Now unlike the previous version, this Blu-ray player features 3D technology right out of the box. It also tosses that old clunky remote control and gives you this new one and that features a QWERTY keyboard on the back and a touch pad on the front. So because this Blu-ray players has Google TV built in, you can control all of your apps with this right here. You can pinch and zoom on web pages, Google Maps, and access your entire AV system because this is also a universal remote. Now one feature that I really like is this built in mic. It doesn't do a voice command but Sony will let you search for things on your TV guide or on Google Search, basically anything that's included in Google TV. They see that voice command may come in the future but that does depend on developers for the Android platform. Now this is a Bluetooth remote which means that you can attach a complete Bluetooth keyboard to this device if you do prefer that experience. Sony is also releasing the NSZ-GS7 which is its first dedicated Google TV device, that will simply turn your TV into a Google enable television. Both of these products will be available by summer but Sony hasn't released the pricing details yet. For CNET.com at CES 2012, I'm Sharon Vaknin.
