Samsung Wants A Web TV Platform: Google Android or Samsung Bada?

Samsung, one of the premiere makers of LCD, LED and Plasma televisions, is reportedly pondering whether to build televisions that use the Google Android operating system. This is the Google dream, to get their Android operating system to become a spinal cord for web connected televisions around the world, and was part of their recent announcement of Google TV.

Some of the features seem to require typing, and unless Samsung is shipping LCD TVs with a wireless keyboard, it’ll probably end up awkward and unused. We take a look at the possibilities after the jump.
