Sony’s Google TV controller has been leaked ahead of schedule, showing up on an episode of NBC Nightline. The controller looks like it combines a full QWERTY keyboard with two directional pads, your usual volume/channel controls for the TV, and a variety of playback buttons. The large layout leaves room for extra button rows with numbers and shortcuts for other functions. It looks pretty good.
Google TV-enabled devices are scheduled to arrive on the market next week. Sony will introduce its Bravia GT1 TV, while Logitech is readying its Revue set-top box. We aren’t sure if Sony will introduce the controller alongside the TV or not.
