    Any thoughts? I want to buy a Vizio Co-Star as my first GTV device when it goes up for pre-order this month.

    The simple answer is because a Google TV ICS hasn't been completed and thoroughly tested yet. It has been promised and as far as I know, never unpromised so I still expect it but when is nothing I could even guess at. I would sure compare the Vizio box to other Google TV devices before buying it, it is the least expensive but in my opinion, that is the only advantage I can see. The new Sony is well worth the $100 premium to me if I was in the market, I am not, I have 3 first generation boxes, all of which are better suited for my needs than the Vizio box.

    Most Google devices will see support for at least 18 months. Remember, updates will only be pushed to devices that can handle them. ICS requires at least 1gb of ram.
