Google TV Puzzle Wiinners Announced, Will Receive Google TV Powered by Android 3.1 Honeycomb

Google announced the winners of the “Building Android Apps for Google TV” session at Google I/O — “Benji Hertel, Alecia Householder, and Jan Jorgensen on their quick wit in solving the puzzle! They’ll receive early access to Android 3.1 Honeycomb on Google TV.”

“We saw a lot of interesting methods being used in an attempt to solve the puzzle and were impressed by the creativity displayed (e.g. http://yfrog.com/z/h2s0sjhj). Our puzzle masters Rich Bragg and Erica Baker even planted a number of signposts with a few subtle hints along the way (http://goo.gl/bgyrygbrg, http://goo.gl/ygbgbrryg, http://goo.gl/ovtotrntv),” Google stated.
