Despite Google’s unexpected request on Monday for manufacturers to hold off on new Google TV hardware until the software can be improved, rumor has it that Samsung and Vizio are both still planning to showcase their Google TV hardware at CES next month.
According to the original NYT article, Vizio will demo their product in a private room rather than on the main floor (we’ll be trying our darndest to get in there), and Samsung will be going ahead as planned with their introduction as well. While on the subject of the original NYT article, as a reader pointed out, the only sources used are “people familiar with the company’s plans,” and until Google or the other manufacturers make some kind of formal announcement, perhaps it’s a bit early to panic.
We will be on hand at CES to bring you the latest and greatest in whatever ends up happening, so be sure to check back often during the convention for all the updates.
