Samsung Google TVs on 2012

samsung google tvSamsung together with the Korean company’s TV division chief confirmed that they are working on Google TV products. The chief affirmed that the sets would be unveiled some time in 2012. Yoon Boo-keun, TV department president, revealed its continuing negotiations this week, as well as insisting that Samsung Google TV products would differ from those of its competitors in an unspecified way.

The company designed a set-top box and a Blu-ray player for the first batch of Google TV products, getting a similar procedure for early Google TV partners Logitech and Sony, but after brief demonstrations at CES 2010 it was not launched commercially, thus never actually reached the market.

It doesn’t appear to have harmed Samsung, for the time being Sony lowered the price of its Google TV sets considerably, and Logitech announced that it didn’t have more plans to launch devices using Google’s system. Current Logitech Revue owners could possibly get Google TV 2.0, the recently launched latest model, but no new hardware is incorporated in the pipeline from the company.

Rumors surfaced from the previous week pertaining to LG’s intentions to push out a Google TV range. The company anticipates to disclose and unveil its first versions at CES 2012 in January.

    When open the program guide and will choose between information, entertainment and so on without realizing, that one content comes from my TV provider and the other is coming from the internet.

    So sony’s google TV should be out tuesday and logitech has all ready shown off their box. But those TV’s that samsung have that are “app capable.” Could you get an ISO of google TV, mount it on a flash drive and install it on the samsung TV or run it on your computer in a dual boot or vm ware/parallels?
