Samsung Committing to Google TV, Unveiling it at CES 2011

Samsung may have beat Google to the market with the first round of mainstream “internet TV” with apps support, but it sounds like they’d rather ditch their home-brewed offering for what Google’s brought to the table.

No details yet, but the TVs will most likely use Intel chipsets to power it along. It’s great that Samsung’s squaring up with their biggest competitor – Sony – with this move. Let’s see if they’ll end up revealing a whole range of Google TV devices before too long. [Samsung Hub]

    Thank you Samsung for switching platforms after I purchased my 3D LED TV this year. I may as well enjoy the Internet@TV now before getting completely left in the cold…
