Sony’s Google TV controller makes it difficult to navigate Google TV

Sony’s Google TV controller is an opportunity lost.

It is still the old-style, clunky TV remote control interface. It will make it very difficult to navigate Google TV or input anything.

A touch screen app on an Android phone would make a wonderful input device for Google TV. However, it needs to be an app that leverages the niceties of a touch interface and does not replicate the clunky TV remote control UI.
