Connectivity-wise, you'll find a HDMI in and out port, an ethernet port and two USB ports, as well as in-built Wi-Fi for hassle-free connectivity. You can also add an IR blaster receiver for more flexible remote-wielding, if you so wish. Built in Bluetooth also means that you can connect up a proper keyboard and mouse for more serious surfing, which is a nice bonus.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/sony-internet-player-android_0_0.jpg?1364400007" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_0_698.png?1364400007" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sony NSZ-GS7 Internet Player with Google TV – OS and power </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Sony's little black box is running a modified version of Android Honeycomb and its dual-core processor combined with 8GB of storage for apps meant that games, browsing and media streaming were taken care of smoothly.
