Samsung Expects to Sell 25 Million Smart TVs in 2012

Adi Robertson, The Verge:

The company’s television head, Kim Hyun-Suk, told reporters that he projects Samsung will sell 50 million flat-screen TVs worldwide this year, of which 25 million will be “smart” models.

I don’t have a TV connected to any TV source, but when I used to watch TV a long time ago all I had to do was get comfortable, grab the remote, and start flipping channels. With these smart TVs watching TV will be a complex, complicated, and frustrating affair. Just the thought of having to wait for a security update is enough. I don’t expect I’d like it and I bet there are many others who won’t either.
