Google TV Launching Later This Year, Says Eric Schmidt

It may have already crept into a young girl's bedroom, but for the rest of us, Google TV will creep onto US TVs later this year and the rest of the world next year.

Eric Schmidt made the announcement at the closing keynote for the IFA convention in Germany today, saying that while they "will work with content providers", it is "very unlikely that we will get into actual content production".

Last week we showed you what Sony TVs running Google TV would look like, and thanks to that aforementioned ad with Google TV scaring a young girl witless, we have a vague idea of what to expect from the Logitech Revue camp too.

It's also thought that Korean giants LG and Samsung are also interested in Google TV. [Reuters]
