FREE Google TV units! to attendees of its Google Zeitgeist conference billed as Google’s “Partners Forum,” and it brings together some of Google’s top advertisers and others to hear a series of inspirational talks that’ve little to nothing to do with Google’s actual business. It’s like a mini-version of the well-known TED conference. The goal seems to be to get partners all fired up and inspired in general.
After a session this morning, Google announced to attendees that they’d all be receiving Google TV. In particular:
Dish TV & service for 3 months (a Dish TV DVR that’s Google TV capable)
Sony Blu-Ray player (one that’s Google TV-capable)
Installation by Best Buy’s The Geek Squad
Google TV is launching on October 17, and Google tells that it’ll only come after the product launches.
