Google expects shedloads of smart TVs

Majority of TVs next year to feature Android


Google Chairman Eric Schmidt believes the majority of all TVs in the second half of 2012 will feature Android.

Things in the smart TV market should heat up in 2012, as both Google and Apple are already vying for the lead, despite the fact that the launch of first next generation televisions is still a couple of months away.

“By the summer of 2012, the majority of the televisions you see in stores will have Google TV embedded in it," he said.

Apple is expected to offer three televisions, ranging from 32 to 55 inches, by the end of 2012. Google on the other hand is working with several manufacturers and Google TV will probably end up in a lot more models from different manufacturers, just like Android phones basically. Hopefully it will do a better job in updating these devices, as it doesn’t exactly have an impressive track record in the phone department.
