"With the powerful, built-in Marvell ARMADA 1500 SoC platform, TCL MoVo with Google TV is a unique combination of Google search technology that is suitable for active users and TCL PBO technology that enables a personalized experience for users that want to sit back and have the TV provide the right content with minimal user interaction," said E Hao, TCL Corporate Vice President and Chief Sales Officer of TCL Multimedia. "MoVo delivers a TV viewing experience catered to the interests of each member of the family."

"We continue to team with Google TV ecosystem partners such as Marvell to bring more ways to offer entertainment and Google services on your TV. With Marvell, we're able to offer a growing array of products at attractive price points," said Suveer Kothari, Director of Business Development for Google TV.

With advanced, cellphone-like power management, the platform is also incredibly energy-efficient.
