A ton of Android news has already come out of Google I/O, but this time Google TV is thrown into the mix. GTV is set to see an OS update to Android 3.1 (Honeycomb) which means two things: developers will be able to create apps that will run on Honeycomb tablets and Google TV using the same SDK, and the Android Market will finally be a part of Google TV. Unfortunately, Google TV will not receive the Market update before the Honeycomb update, as they will both be released as one, OTA update.

While no exact date is available, the update is scheduled to be released sometime this summer.

    I hope so!!!!!! Cant wait to see what kind of things people will come up with! Besides the obvious Media players apps, facebook apps, Looks like developers are going to have to stray from the norm with apps.

    About time. I've had one since October.

    Developers:
    How about a nice port of XBMC?
