Toshiba, Vizio Crashing the Google TV Party in January 2011

While major content providers continue to shun the Google TV platform, at least getting hardware vendors lined up doesn't seem to be a problem. According to a Bloomberg report , both Toshiba and Vizio plan to unveil Google TV products at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, 2011.

"We are very happy with the launch of Google TV with our initial partners Sony, Logitech, and Intel," Google said. "Our long-term goal is to collaborate with a broad community of consumer electronics manufacturers to help drive the next generation, TV-watching experience."

There's also talk of Samsung joining the fray, thought that's still up in the air. And technically, so are the plans of Toshiba and Vizio -- Bloomberg's information comes courtesy of "people familiar with the matter" rather than talking heads from each respective company.

No other company shipped more LCD TVs in the U.S. in the third quarter than Vizio, while Toshiba was the sixth most active, according to iSuppli.
