04 Jan 2012 | Rasmus Larsen |

Even though Samsung is expected to release <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1321949556><b>Google TVs in 2012</b></a>, they continue work on their own Smart TV platform. Samsung has just updated the developer platform (SDK) to version 3.0 with support for USB controllers, payments and advertising.<br /><br /><h3>Samsung Smart TVs 3.0</h3>Samsung has announced that Smart TV developers will soon be able to utilize the new features of the SDK 3.0 (software developer kit).<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsungsmarttv-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsungsmarttv-2.jpg" alt="Samsung Smart TV" title="Click to enlarge"/></a><br><i>Samsung’s Smart TVs will receive new features</i></p><br />The new platform supports USB controllers, keyboards and joysticks, and allow developers to display ads in their TV apps. Samsung has also implemented a payment module, which allows developers to create premium apps. <br /><br />Samsung's developer community has 25,000 registered users from 140 countries, but taken the number of TV apps into consideration most of them are probably inactive.<br /><br />We are not sure what this means Samsung's Google TV plans but Samsung might choose to run the two platforms side-by-side – like Sony is doing today. The new Smart TV features will be demonstrated at CES 2012.
