Google TV coming to the UK by early 2012

Can Google become the king of smart TV with Honeycomb and Search?

Forget about 3D glasses and those crucial extra inches for a minute. How about a Honeycomb UI, YouTube in HD, unified search for both TV and internet content and catch-up services on your TV screen? Google exec Eric Schmidt is set to talk about the UK roll-out of Google TV later on today but The Telegraph got its mitts on the details ahead of the announcement.

The Google TV set top box and service should be available in the UK in the next six months and with Sony already showing off its compatible sets, it should make for some interesting retaliation from Samsung and LG. Tablets? What tablets?
