Logitech Revue is coming [Teaser]

Logitech is gearing up to release the first Google TV companion box, the Revue, and their first teaser commercial has just gone live on YouTube. The 30 second spot poses the question, “What does TV do when no one’s watching?” and proceeds to show a TV set walk into a pool. I’m not sure if the TV is supposed to be committing suicide, but a Logitech blog posts discusses how the TV is losing attention as it competes with PCs and sends them a message of hope. “Hold on, TV. Revue is coming.”

Check out the video after the break and let us know what you think of Logitech’s latest ad. We expect to more details to be released next month when Google makes some TV related announcements.

    I think it really is trying to commit cyber suicide lol.

    Hopefully Revue works better than the Google TV demos when they first showed them :O

    Somehow I got teary-eyed watching that TV walk into the pool.

    I am so angry at myself for that.

    Huge android fan… but I just don’t see this Google TV thing sticking around. I mean, people can just hook up their PCs to their TVs…. I don’t really see a need for it since I just can pop open chrome on my tv, Boxee, tv tuner card, Miro, hulu, and comcast fancast…. I get everything I need.

    Google’s one saving grace in this is the ability to search not only the tv channel listings but also online media seems interesting… but how reliable that will be remains to be seen.

      I’m looking more toward what the future will bring to this device. A greater integration with Android.

      RIght now, from your point of view, all this device will really be is an HTPC. When the time comes, the ease of this device connecting with your smartphone, tablet, car, etc. may be exactly what people never knew they needed. I’m willing to take a chance and invest in it from the start much like I did with Android.

      That is, if the price is right.
