Samsung Google TV Coming in 2011?

By Sindre Lia, Tuesday 16 November 2010
 
A new report suggests that Samsung is preparing to launch HDTVs with Google TV integration in 2011.

Bloomberg reports that Samsung is planning to launch new HDTVs with Google TV integration in 2011. The current price pressure on panels may simply be forcing Samsung to offer a wider range of specialized HDTVs targeting those who are looking for Internet TV-enabled solutions.

Having a Samsung "Internet TV" in our living room, we can certainly attest for the need of more powerful solutions like what Google TV enables. A lot has been said about Google TV lately, but one thing is for sure: There's no point slamming the Internet TV concept until a significant amount of people will actually be able to use a solution as ambitious as Google TV.

Head of Samsung's TV business, Yoon Boo Keun, told Bloomberg that details have yet to be decided, but that the company is "open" to using Intel Corp's chips for its TVs. Bloomberg says that Samsung is planning to make an announcement in January about introducing TVs using Google's software, as the company aims to spur demand.

There's always the chance that Samsung will skip Google TV and officially announce their own revamped solution, but we hope that the company will have room for a few Google TV-powered models in their HDTV lineup for 2011 too.
