Bloomberg: Samsung “Reviewing” Android-Based TVs

Android lovers who are in the market for a new HD TV might want to hold off just a little bit longer. Samsung, the top TV maker in the U.S. at nearly 20% market share, is considering Android for its line of televisions. Speaking to reporters earlier today, Samsung exec Yoon Boo Keun said the company is “reviewing” the possibility of adding Android’s features to its sets.  Some of you may recall that Samsung was rumored to be considering Android as far back as April.

Samsung, as a whole, appears to be falling more in love with the platform by the day. After a few early mis-steps with the Behold II and initial Galaxy phones, Samsung has gone full steam with the Galaxy S handset and Galaxy Tab. Meshing Android with their popular line of televisions seems to be the logical next step.

Samsung would join a short list of companies involved in Android-based Google TV’s. Currently, the only other major players are Sony and Logitech.
