    Google just shared this morning on their GoogleTV blog their newest list of partners that are signing on for some part of GoogleTV. It's nice to see the list growing, and it includes a nice gamut of manufacturers now. Here's a quote from the blog with some details:

    What do you guys think? Could this be the year that GoogleTV finally starts to create a solid marketshare and grow into a successful product?

    Many of these new GTV products will be displayed at CES - but when they actually hit the store shelves is another matter:

    LG joins Google TV family, while Samsung, Sony, Vizio promise new Google TV devices for 2012 | ZDNet

    "Many of these should be on display during CES, though that certainly does not mean we would actually see them on store shelves anytime soon. Last year, there was a big fanfare for Vizio’s Google TV sets, which never materialized for consumers to buy. Likewise, Samsung has been a partner for some time, but we still haven’t seen a Google TV product from the company yet.

    Given the increasing competitive pressures, Google TV needs its partners not only to display new products at CES, but also to have them reach stores soon. We’ll get a better idea of whether they can deliver on that next week from the trade show."

    I think more CE companies will jump on GTV bandwagon this year. Far cheaper to use GTV for free instead of creating their own apps and interface.

    Old news, Logitech bowed out some time ago, the huge losses associated with the Revue caused that to happen. The company is in no position to risk further losses and will stick with product lines it has more control over, the Revue was completely at the mercy of Google TV and its development or lack thereof. I love the Revue but understand why Logitech can't participate any longer.
