Google’s chairman, Eric Schmidt, shared some insight at the LeWeb 2011 event yesterday. One of his predictions is that most TVs will come with Google TV in 2012.
Google TV in most 2012 TVs
Google TV is a smart TV platform and it has recently been updated to feature TV Apps, a new user interface and more (hands-on article). Yesterday, Eric Schmidt publicly said that Google TV will be embedded in most TVs by summer 2012.
Mock-up, not an actual Samsung Google TV
Schmidt’s statement at the LeWeb event coincides with the recent rumors about Google TVs from Samsung and LG. Sony and Vizio are also supporting the Google TV platform, and we expect more to join soon. Watch the full interview here (Google TV talk at 39:20).
The 2012 TVs are expected to launch at CES 2012 in Las Vegas this January. Join FlatpanelsHD in January for full CES 2012 coverage.
