GoogleTelevisionMatsushita Electric Industrial Co Ltd’s Panasonic announced today (via Reuters) that it will start development and production of television sets that will allow viewers to watch photos and video streamed live from the Internet. The hardware will be developed in close coordination with Google. The television sets will allow viewers to directly access videos from YouTube and view, edit and share Picasa Web Albums.

No word on Gmail, Docs or general Search at this point. It isn’t clear at this point if the TV sets will be named TeleGoogles or simply come with a ‘Google Inside’ sticker.
