You win some and you lose some. It appears Google lost the support of Logitech who blamed Google for their Revue flop and $100 Million loss, but they may have gained the support of LG, the world’s second largest television maker. Rumor has it that LG will announce their first GTV at CES in January 2012, just a couple short months away.
Google TV launched last holiday season and has been extremely slow to catch on. I’m still convinced that it will inevitably catch on like wildfire. The missing link has been Android Market and despite GTV being updated to include the market a few weeks ago, it’s still not open for all developers to submit their apps and games. Once that happens? Watch out.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Google TV is one of the next big frontiers of Android growth and once it catches on, I’d expect competitors to follow suit. You never know, Apple could be preparing their own iTV right now (Apple TV doesn’t count).
