Vizio seeing strong demand for Google TV set-top

Vizio seeing strong demand for Google TV set-top
Vizio has announced today that it cannot keep the new Co-Star Google TV set-top in stock due to high demand.

The company began pre-orders on the $99 device last week and says the first batch sold out within 12 hours. Vizio allowed for pre-orders again briefly afterwards, but they are currently shut down.



Co-Stars are expected to ship August 14th and the company is offering free shipping, as well.

The device will be the first Google TV device to have built-in OnLive support, allowing for cloud-based gaming.

On top the standard Google TV features, the gadget will have pre-loaded Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, iHeartRadio, and OnLive apps.

The Co-Star will come with a dual-sided Bluetooth remote, with one side being a full QWERTY keypad. The set-top has 802.11n Wi-Fi and USB ports.

    Google didn't do this, silly, Vizio did. Google has their own version.
