Samsung May Use Android in TVs to Fight Sony, Apple

Samsung Electronics Co., the world’s largest television manufacturer, may make sets run by Google Inc.’s software to compete with Sony Corp. and Apple Inc. in the market for TVs that access movies, shows and games online.

“We will have to see, but we are reviewing” whether to use Google’s Android operating system, Yoon Boo Keun, head of Samsung’s TV business, told reporters today on the sidelines of a forum in Seoul. A key question is whether South Korean movie, TV and music providers will cooperate with Google, he said.
