small_chumby_tv_01Chumby already makes very solid digital photo frames, but they haven’t stopped there, apparently. Today they announced a collaboration with Broadcom that could change the landscape of widgets and HDTV forever.

This partnership, according to several sources, will integrate its media internet platform onto a a chip that will find its place among set-top boxes and DVD players, among other similar devices.

Chumby may be the perfect one to accomplish this feat, as widgets and similar type stuff is about they really do, and therefore they can do them quite well. Just imagine: having over 1,000 snippets of info at your fingertips, constantly being updated on the internet, while watching your favorite HDTV show. It’s a future that was beyond imagining just a short time ago, but it could be coming to a set near you very soon.
