The Sony BRAVIA Smart Stick, otherwise known as the Sony NSZ-GU1 Google TV in FCC filings of yore, has been revealed partially. It does look, however, that the rumors are true – Sony was working on a Google Chromecast rival, and the Sony BRAVIA Smart Stick looks set to be the device in question. While it was not mentioned in the FCC filing that the BRAVIA Smart Stick will arrive with certain features that make it look as though it will styled after Chromecast, we do know for sure that it will be an MHL dongle which is capable of handling its own BRAVIA apps in addition to Google TV, of course.
Sony has also thrown in a “picture-and-picture” feature, so that those of you with a multi-tasking brain are able to view a browser in one window, and check out what is playing on TV in the other. Considering how this is a true blue Google TV device, you can be sure that it can also handle Android apps from the Play Store. Strangely enough, the URL provided by Sony does not reflect anything about the BRAVIA Smart Stick, but we will leave it here nonetheless just in case things change for the better in the future.
