Google TV’s Complicated User Interface

NY Times comments on Google TV’s complicated interface.

Google TV’s first products from Sony and Logitech makes the user experience too complex – too difficult for users.   Use of keyboards in the living room, complicated navigation and a raw finish will be a big turn off for users. The complexity carries over to the phone apps.

Perhaps the upcoming Google TV’s from Samsung will remedy the situation. However, if the user interface (use of keyboards etc) is dictated by the Chrome browser being used, then it will be more of the same.

Google TV, needs lot of work!
