Google seeks 'Google TV set' delays
The Wall Street Journal reported that Google Inc. has requested that manufacturers of televisions based on its software delay their release, citing sources close to the company.

Several major electronics companies are getting ready to bring Google TV-ready television sets to the market around the world. Google has allegedly asked them now to delay the planned introduction of the televisions to the market, saying it will give the company time to improve the software.



Televisions armed with Google TV software lets users browse the Internet and use applications without the need for an external set-top-box. Sony Corp. and Logitech already have introduced devices based on Google TV.

Despite Google's request, WSJ is reporting that Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd will still go ahead with the launch of its Google TV products at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January.
