While Sony and Logitech are done with Google TV, it looks like Google is picking up new partners to continue its TV-platform.

No word on whether a product will be showcased at CES 2012, but in any case it should be arriving some time in 2012. What do you think of a Samsung-branded Google TV? Seems odd to me, seeing how Samsung already has its own smart TV platform with its own app ecosystem – Google TV would be a direct competitor. Then again, if it’s all about selling Samsung TVs, this would be a good idea. I guess time will tell. What do you think of a Samsung-branded Google TV?
