Google TV: They better hurry to meet Schmidt’s target

Janko Roettgers for GigaOM – Less than 1M Google TV devices in use:

It’s widely known Google TV hasn’t exactly been a success story. Early CE partner Logitech lost millions on the device, and consumer feedback was mostly negative after the first devices reached the market in late 2010. But how many of Logitech’s Revue boxes and Sony’s Google TV devices are actually being used by consumers? The answer is less than a million, according information hidden in Google’s own data. Also interesting: Logitech’s Revue set-top box makes up more than half of those devices.

Remember Schmidt saying this?

By the summer of 2012, the majority of the televisions you see in stores will have Google TV embedded.
