Speaking of Google TV at CES, Janko Roettgers of NewTeeVee noticed a potential problem other than being underwhelmed:

But as Google is paving the way to take the platform mainstream, a new, potentially powerful competitor is starting to emerge. No, it’s not Apple’s long-rumored TV set but Google’s own open-source Android operating system, which is used by CE manufacturers and pay-TV operators alike to introduce new devices and services that come with Android apps but without Google’s blessing.

Lenovo introduced the first TV using Ice Cream Sandwich, but it’s a completely custom build — meaning no Google apps and no Android Market. Yes, the Kindle Fire model.

Maybe Eric Schmidt isn’t so crazy after all. Maybe Android will be running on “the majority” of televisions soon — but maybe these builds won’t look like Android at all and will have nothing to do with Google. 

Actually, the six month claim is still crazy.
