*Official* Google TV on Marvell's ARMADA 1500

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Google TV is back (from the dead?)

Marvell announced today that their 88DE3100 SoC (ARMADA 1500) will be powering all the Google TV devices moving forward.

Got some coverage of the SoC and some general comments about Google TV here:

Looking forward to using this thread to keep abreast of how Google TV on ARM shapes up

I have the logitech revue for about a month now (honeycomb 3.1), it works just fine as a netflix streamer and basic web search. I have yet to integrate my cable box so that will be another plus when I can search across all those sources with a real keyboard.

WOW - is there an ETA for this device?! I just got the Nixeus Fusion XS over the holidays and so far its doing good but do still need some work with the firmware and its not compatible with the Android Market - right now I'm playing with "unofficial" Android Apps from XDA-Developers. Hopefully the Android APPs that will work for the "new" Google TV will work with the Fusion XS!! That would be AWESOME!!

This is what I've been waiting for and why I didn't buy the revue at 99 bucks. I don't imagine that google will continue to develop future iterations for the intel chip.

On a separate note, I wonder if boxee will switch to this chip for v2?

from what i understand the intel ce line is dead. so people will either move to an ivy bridge or marvell,

So far the marvell has fallen short sdk is still to immature needs a lot of growing room.

I wonder what are the differences with this Marvell soc compared to thier 88DE3010?
Thier 88DE3010 has full 1080P Blu-ray 3D support. Does the 88DE3100 have the same?
