This short interview with Logitech CEO Jerry Quindlen was shot way back in May, but given the company’s prevalence in the news these days, we thought it was worth posting. In the interview, Quindlen asserts that one of his company’s main goals with Google TV was the sale of peripherals, including video cameras and gaming controllers. This philosophy was reasserted today during the company’s teleconference, where he expressed an openness to one day ditching the set-top box altogether to focus strictly on peripherals. “(W)e may not be in the box business in the future. We haven’t made that strategic decision at this point. What we’re trying to do is, we want to see the box out there, the companion box is what I’m referring to, so that a standard consumer experience is established in the marketplace. And so we have a vested interest to see that happen.” While it seems that Logitech is not entirely certain where they see themselves down the road with Google TV, it seems they are keeping their options open.
