Samsung, Sony and LG already have Google TVs in the works and a few smart TVs are already on the market, but sales have been slow so far. Market penetration could hit 10 percent in 2011, but next year it is set to double.

The number of so-called connected TVs, which offer basic internet connectivity and streaming, is also on the rise. Their market share is set to hit 30 percent in 2011 and grow to about 50 percent in 2013.
