Sources at Samsung revealed that they are looking at TV’s that incorporate Google’s Android OS in them. I’m not so sure I want a TV that is quite that intelligent.

An anonymous Samsung exec was quoted as saying, “we are considering Google TVs.” It makes sense to license Android, since the application base keeps growing, and you could potentially write software to take advantage of a larger display for productivity reasons. Besides, it’s also rumored that Sony is working on a Android TV as well, which will certainly help drive other manufacturers towards the technology.
