Google TV has got something exciting in its store. While partnerships with Pandora and Napster excite the media consumer in U.S., the real killer application will be video calling using devices like Logitech’s Google TV box, the Revue. Although not mentioned on the site, it is clear that the Revue will work with Logtiech HD cameras like the C910. While we’ve been able to make Skype video calls on PCs, mobile phones, and laptops for years, imagine if you could do it from the comfort of your couch, reports John Biggs from The Crunch Gear.
There is an entire generation of users who couldn’t give the steam o’ their piss about Ooyala integration but they would stand in line to see the grandkids in living HD on a big screen. Video calling will be as simple to use as Facetime. Skype is easy but anything beyond contact management and pressing a single button marked Call may be too much for the intended audience. To those naysayers who think video calling isn’t important: Logitech and Cisco aren’t making their money on selling to dorks who love Google. They make money by selling cool hardware to the world. And to the worlds’ parents.
