Other Features: Sony’s new 40-inch LED HDTV is a good example of convergence. It is a TV, but also incorporates Google TV and a host of web content that you can enjoy while watching your favorite television shows. A fast internal processor handles great picture on the screen as well as being able to connect to the internet and download apps to bring you Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, Picasa, Napster, Netflix, the Android Market, and more. The system is upgradeable via internet downloads as they become available. Now you can watch the game while tracking your fantasy team, tweet about the TV show you’re watching, or update your Facebook status while viewing TV.

The remote has a full keyboard (not full-size keyboard) for easy controlling and typing of searches, posting to social networks, and more. It’s big, black and white and easy to find, even if you tend to lose remotes in your couch cushions.
