Samsung considering Google Android for HDTVs

Samsung is looking into incorporating Google's Android OS into its HDTVs, according to a report in the Korea Herald. An unnamed Samsung executive is reported to have said, "We are considering (developing) Google TVs. We are examining the business feasibility of Google TVs."

The company already offers its own selection of TV-based apps via Internet@TV, which lets users install widgets to their HDTVs. Since any Google TV plans are in the very early planning stages, it's still unknown whether Android could supplement or replace Samsung's already-present app library.
