Google Announces New Google TV Partners, Hardware To Be Revealed At CES

google tvGoogle TV's debut device, the Logitech Revue, may have been a commercial failure, but Google isn't showing any signs of giving up on the platform. We've already seen the Revue receive the Honeycomb 3.1 update, bringing the all-important Market access to the platform, and now Google has announced a host of Google TV partners who plan to unveil hardware at CES next week:

  • LG
  • Marvell
  • MediaTek
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • Vizio

Although they didn't release many specific details, it seems that many of these new Google TV-powered devices will actually be TVs as opposed to separate boxes - LG even plans to release an entire of line of TVs, powered by their own L9 chipset. Chipset designer MediaTek will power most (if not all) of the new wave of Google TV devices. It remains to be seen if Google TV can become a commercial success, but with so many new companies supporting the platform, it surely has a better chance than last year.
