Vizio and Google announce the VAP430 standalone Google TV streamer | New Digital Media |

Google TV is alive and kicking at CES this year, but with Logitech backing out of standalone units, who’s going to pick up the pieces? Vizio and Google just announced the Vizio VAP430 Stream Player. This is a standalone unit that will turn any HDTV into an enhanced VIZIO Internet Apps Plus and smart TV incorporating the latest Google TV. It includes a Chrome browser and will play music, video, and pictures stored on any computer, hard drive, or smart phone connected to a local network or the cloud. Just like the Logitech Revue, it has a pass-through HDMI port for your cable or satellite box, which creates a seamless television experience.
