Sony's Google TV controller spotted

QWERTY-packing remote unveiled in US

Tippy-tap around web pages and choose channels using the Big S's hulking new controller.

Suitably excited by Google TV, despite it being US only at launch? Us too. And to add to the Big G’s recent official video showing off the interface and apps looking slick on its new offering, now we have a first sneak peek at Sony’s controller for its Google TV-packing efforts thanks to ABC in the US.

As you can see, this bad boy is huge, packing a full QWERTY keyboard, so you can zip around the web on your TV. There are two d-pads and the usual volume controls you’d find on a bog-standard remote.

Sony’s Google TV kit is set to be unveiled soon, with Logitech’s lineup getting an airing in New York today.
