The official Google TV Team's Twitter revealed earlier this evening that Sony has begun releasing an update for Google TV devices. Evidently, the update includes performance enhancements for Chrome (chiefly concerning start-up time), and the ability to watch 3D Blu-ray movies.
If you're the owner of a Sony GoogleTV, the ~260MB update should be automatically rolling out any time now, but just in case yours hasn't shown up yet, you can go to System Settings > About > System Updates and pull the update manually.

There have been rumors of the Sony Ericsson "Nozomi" for the past few weeks, but today IT Pro Portal landed some exclusive snapshots of the device. The phone is said to have a 1280x720 HD display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB RAM, a massive 12MP camera, and is running Android 2.3.7.
Warning: Pic orgy!
The leaker also took the time to grab some screenshots of Quadrant's System Information screen, along with a quite impressive benchmark.
To avoid confusion: Quadrant is not optimized for dual-core CPUs. Therefore, it doesn't recognize that a second core even exits, which is why is shows "Cores: 1" in the system information.

Following up on the success of our 404 design and banner design contests, we've decided to run another creative giveaway, graciously sponsored by NVIDIA and Philips. Personally, I think the creative contests are always the best - we get beautiful graphic assets and designs, and our talented readers get a platform on which to showcase their skills and creative abilities. Besides all that, looking through the entries is always a good time.
This time around, we're looking for static wallpapers. Specifically, we're looking for well-designed, versatile wallpapers that are clearly related to Android Police - think of it as designing the official AP wallpaper.
