Google Tries To Win Over Developers With A Google TV Giveaway

With Google (NSDQ: GOOG) TV now on the market, the company is trying to convince developers to optimize their sites for the system. Its strategy: Give away free Google TVs. Google says it will give away 10,000 devices to developers over the “next few weeks.” It already handed out 3,000 of them to attendees at the Adobe (NSDQ: ADBE) MAX conference this morning.

Google has always been generous with developer gifts, famously handing out Android phones to all 4,000 attendees at its Google I/O developer conference a year-and-a-half ago, for instance.
