According to to Adweek and the WSJ, Google is expected to roll out Google TV in 2012 with two of the world’s largest TV manufacturers- Samsung and LG.

Apparently, Google is talking with Samsung to create a TV that will run Android software and have web surfing capabilities, like the Android smartphone.

While Samsung wont announce the Google TV product at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this January, LG is expected to reveal its own LG Google TV at the trade show.

TV manufacturers are hoping that Google-enabled televisions will boost TV sales and Google is hoping to compete with Apple, who has already created buzz around its own smart TV.
