Pre-orders for the upcoming NSZ-GS7 with Google TV are already being accepted by Sony as speculations have emerged on how it will fare in the market.

The launch of the latest Google TV of Sony, which was initially introduced during the Consumer Electronics Show near the start of the year, was finally announced by the company. The upcoming device, which will be called the NSZ-GS7 with Google TV, will be launched into the market by Sony on July 22.

The upcoming device will have a price tag of around $199. The company has also introduced another device, the NSZ-GP9, which offers support for Blu-ray to the built-in Google TV feature. The NSZ-GP9 will reportedly be available by the holiday shopping season and will have a price tag of around $299.

Although the Google TV was supposed to expand the capabilities of users in the living room through the incorporation of the home theater content of the user into one platform, it has been a bit of a disappointment for users. The lack of support for the Google TV and the fact that the DVR integration will only work for subscribers to the Dish Network has made it more of a niche product.

It remains uncertain of the Google TV will benefit from the NSZ-GS7 even as a recent review made on the device showed that the software for Google TV remains unremarkable as it lacks support for applications of major streaming services such as Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant and MLB.TV. The movie rental service of Google itself is not supported by the device.

However the trendy design of the NSZ-GS7 has impressed some observers while the double-sided remote control that features a touch pad and keyboard may prove to be practical.

With that said, the consumers will have the final say on how the NSZ-GS7 with Google TV will fare in the market.
