Samsung Google TV Announcement
Samsung may release a range of High Definition Television (HDTV) sets integrated with Google TV, a report has suggested.
Yoon Boo Keun, head of Samsung’s TV unit, told Bloomberg that the consumer electronics giant is open to the idea of integrating Intel’s chips in Samsung TV’s.
According to Bloomberg, Samsung is planning to launch a line up of Google TV sets and unveil it during the CES event in January next year.
Last October Sony launched a range of Google TV-equipped sets in the US, ranging in size from 24 to 46 inches and priced between $600 to $1,400.
Google TV is currently available on selected Sony TVs and the Logitech Revue set-top box. The Logitech revue set-top box is priced at $299.99 and can connect with any HDTV and provides 720p video conferencing capability.
The decision for one of the world’s top TV manufacturers to integrate Google TV into a range of its HDTV sets is set to benefit the search giant, allowing it to push Google TV to a much wider audience than otherwise possible.
