Logitech may have been first to "announce" its devices would be getting the Google TV Android 3.1 update by way of some stickers on its Revue boxes, but Sony claims its televisions will be the first to get the update. In a blog post, Sony said that Google would start sending out the update automatically "early next week," bringing access to the Android Marketplace and Android Apps.

The update should apply to both Sony Internet TV with Google TV devices as well as Sony Blu-ray players with Google TV. It doesn't appear that Sony is making any effort to add more access to content as a differentiator, but perhaps its assuming those rumors of new YouTube content deals combined with Google TV's updated YouTube app will go a long way towards fixing that particular problem.
