Logitech opens preorders for Revue Google TV set-top box

By on October 6, 2010, 5:59 PM
Logitech has started taking preorders for its "Revue" Google TV set-top device today, with initial pricing set at $300. That fee gets you an Android-based media box with applications for popular social and entertainment services including Netflix, Hulu, Napster, Pandora, Twitter and others. Logitech believes that list will grow, too. "With a huge community of developers creating apps for the upcoming Android Market, there's no telling what your TV will be able to do." Naturally, you can view local content with a preinstalled media player as well.

The set-top box features HDMI input and output, 802.11a/b/g/n and 10/100 Ethernet, S/PDIF-out, and two USB 2.0 ports. It also has Logitech's Unifying technology letting you connect up to six compliant accessories. Included in the $300 package is a keyboard with integrated touch and directional controls, an HDMI cable, an IR blaster and a pair of AA batteries. Other accessories such as a webcam for video calls are also up for preorder, but you'll pay plenty extra for them. The camera is $150, while a Revue-specific version of the diNovo Mini is $130.

I'm assuming and hoping you can develop Android apps for it and it will not be a walled garden...

This turned out to be my favorite purchase of 2010! As a DISH Network employee and subscriber I was pretty psyched when I heard that DISH, Google and Logitech were working closely together for the advanced integration features. I bought one at the discounted price for DISH customers of $179 with the $4/mo. integration fee. I have to say I think it was well worth it. Paired to my ViP722 receiver (the 622 and 722k are also supported) it functions seamlessly its operation is very intuitive and initial set-up wasn't too bad either. I hear they're going to be adding even more functionality to it soon, I can't wait to see where this technology goes.
