Eric Schmidt: Google TV on ‘Majority’ of New TVs by Summer 2012

Jeff Blagdon, writing for The Verge:

Eric Schmidt thinks his company is doing great — much better than we had even realized. Onstage at LeWeb in Paris this afternoon, Google’s Executive Chairman told the audience that, “By the summer of 2012, the majority of the televisions you see in stores will have Google TV embedded.” The claim would seem to run counter to mixed reviews, disappointing sales numbers to date, and the growth of competing connected TV platforms. Perhaps Schmidt knows something we don’t?

Maybe he’s high? Are there any TVs for sale today with Google TV embedded?

Update: Sony has them, with that great remote control.
