Google Sets up Top box?

The electronics firm Logitech has announced its new set top box, the first piece of kit to actually be marketed under the Google TV equipment brand.

The set top box is similar in size to the Apple TV box, although this one will be finished off in black.

It has been described as being a cross between a set top box and smartphone, but of course there is no display.

The Google TV set top box will come with an Intel CE4100 atom based processor, two HDMI ports, Wi-Fi, 4GB of storage, two USB ports and Dolby 5.0 to complete the basic specs.

Word has it that an iPhone and Android app will be released that allows the user to remotely access the machine, which is due to appear in the UK in 2012.
