We've been saying that Google TV needs a lot more partners if it's going to make it and boy howdy, Google's come through. In a post on the official Google TV blog
, they've announced a series of new hardware partners including some very familiar names, like LG, Samsung and Vizio, all
of whom will release Google TV powered devices sometime in 2012. Chipset makers Marvell and MediaTek were also announced, as well as the sole returning Google TV manufacturer, Sony.
