  新华网7月26日电 科技博客Gizmodo刊文称,谷歌正在开发一个机顶盒项目,突出其Hangouts服务。

  如果谷歌刚刚发布的电视棒Chromecast不够用的话,我们可以看看《华尔街日报》报道的谷歌正在研发的另一项设备:以通讯为重心的机顶盒。

  根据该报报道,安卓部门前负责人安迪·鲁宾(Andy Rubin)在今年初的CES大会上向少数人展示了一个类似Roku的机顶盒。这个设备的卖点是谷歌的Hangouts服务:机顶盒带有摄像头和动态感应功能,允许你在沙发上舒舒服服地进行视频通话。机顶盒还能运行安卓应用、游戏和Netflix之类的流媒体。

  该报称谷歌原本计划在I/O大会上发布这个设备,不过显然这次没有。如果这个说法有点真实性的话,那么则意味着要么是Chromecast取代了机顶盒,要么是我们未来还可以看到功能更加强大的设备。不过这些话也有可能压根就没什么根据。

  WSJ: Google Is Also Testing a Hangout-Equipped Set-Top Box

  If Chromecast isn"t enough, the Wall Street Journal is now reporting that Google has also been working on another living room device: a set-top box with a heavy emphasis on communication.

  According to the newspaper, ex-Android head Andy Rubin demonstrated a Roku-style set-top box to a select band at CES earlier this year. It"s main selling point was, apparently, a heavy Hangouts emphasis: it featured a video camera and motion sensor to let you video call from the comfort of the sofa. It also ran Android apps, games, and streaming services like Netflix.

  The paper claims that the original plan was to launch that device at I/O—which obviously didn"t happen. If there"s any truth in these rumors, then, that suggests that either Chromecast may have taken its place, or that we can expect a more fully-featured living room device from Google in the future. Or it"s all junk. [WSJ]来源新华国际)
