Samsung readies Google TV tellies

Takes aim at Sony

High performance access to file storage

Samsung will take the wraps of Google TV-equipped televisions next year, almost certainly at January's Consumer Electronics Shows (CES).

So says the head of the South Korean giant's TV business, so who are we to argue?

That said, we'd question Yoon Boo Keun's claim that the details have yet to be decided - the launch is only a month-and-a-half away, man, you must have it specced up by now.

We're sure Samsung has, but it's not going to tell Bloomberg - or us - that.

When they arrive, the Google TV TVs will join similar offerings from Sony and a set-top box from Logitech.

Google TV is only available in the US at the moment, but whispers have suggested it will debut internationally next year, in spite of the resistance of some content providers who object, not unreasonably, to Google's seeming ambition to become internet portal to the world - and fling adverts at it. ®
