Intel's retail director for the UK, Dan Belton has predicted that the smart TV category will see strong growth next year.
In an interview with PCR, Belton stated: "The whole smart TV category is set to explode. And I was quite pleased to see Samsung calling it smart TV. Our expectation this year is that it’s going to be very important, especially as more and more of the content gets unlocked.
"Next year is when it will get really big. And we’re right at the heart of that. A lot of people that are selling our CPUs are also selling the TVs."
Belton discusses this as well as the Sandy Bridge chips in an interview which can be read here.
