Google Announces Google TV Partners to Watch For At CES

Google has updated the official Google TV blog with some nice information on who to look for at CES next week. First Google points out that since the recent update to Google TV they have seen activation rates more than double. There are now over 150 apps built specifically for Google TV. They are working to bring new Google TV devices to the masses, and they’ve listed some partners to keep an eye out for at CES.

  • MediaTek – We’re also excited to partner with MediaTek, the leading Taiwanese chipset designer. MediaTek chipsets will power yet another wave of Google TV devices.
  • Samsung – We’re excited to work closely with Samsung to bring Google-TV powered Samsung devices to market in 2012.
