Google TV to Launch Oct. 17?

10:35 AM -- Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) TV will likely be launched on Oct. 17, Engadget reports, based on an internal document leaked from Best Buy, one of Google TV's official partners. According to the document, the original launch date was Oct. 3, but it has been delayed two weeks.

This contradicts recent claims from Paul Otellini, CEO of Intel, another Google TV partner, that Google TV would begin shipping this month.
