By some reports Panasonic and Samsung
were going to easily pass on Sony / Google / Intel's Google TV
initiative, but a report today from the Korea Herald
indicates that may not be the case. While LG has stated it "has not considered" making a Google TV, the newspaper states an executive from Samsung says they are looking into making Android-powered TVs. We'll see if the company is too worried about losing control over its Samsung Apps
marketplace to jump in --or just turned off by the high price Panasonic claimed as a deterrent -- but we'd estimate three or four more
rumors of unknown provenance before we hear anything official from the parties involved.
