Video: Another Logitech Revue Honeycomb leak; announcement right around the corner

Logitech Revue

The announcement of the new version of Google TV should be coming any day now. As usual, leaks are rolling out just a bit before the official announcement. And today we have something for you to take a look at–and even play with, if you feel adventurous.

There has been a second leak of the new version for the Logitech Revue. This time it comes with more Google TV apps (including Netflix) that have actually been showing up in the Android Market[1]. To take a look at what will be available, just do a search for “Google TV” in the Android Market. There’s a large array of applications, and they can basically be recognized by the end of the title. (It usually says “…for Google TV”).

The UI is definitely looking sexy. And, as Blake from Channel Android mentions, it looks much more like a finished build. If you’d like to try it out on your Logitech Revue, you can install it. But you must install the previous leak first. Not doing so will brick your device, so be careful. You can find the installation instructions at GTVHacker.

If you prefer waiting for official releases, just take a look at the video and check out what the future holds. Stay tuned for the upcoming announcement (which should come any day) and let us know how you’re liking it! Are you guys excited to try out the new version of Google TV?

    Really looking foward to the update before I purchase this, this article may just entice me to get it tomorrow at sears when I go in to look for a new TV. Google is gonna be on almost every electronic in my house soon.

    Well, I still am suffering from a case of early adopteritis… I hope they roll this out soon so I can get some use out of my setup… Google should do the right thing and send earlier gTv adopters a free Prime handset… Wishful thinking…

    Having recently purchased the $99 revue, I’ve been enjoying it for the most part but am starting to feel some it’s limitations with the original UI in terms of content and behavior – so I’m very much looking forward to bringing the Honeycomb experience to mine. I’ll probably wait for the official release however. Especially since it will mostly close the loop on the controller side of things for us Squeezebox owners bring together the streaming/networked audio and video offerings from Logitech. Now if only squeezebox server could run from android I could replace my media PC entirely. Either way, I certainly feel that the Revue is well worth the 99 bucks.

    Someone convince me that I need this. Here’s my situation. I don’t have cable or satellite, however I do pull in free local channels with a digital antenna. (The antenna has a coax cable that runs into my HDTV) So I don’t think I could use it with the Revue. For the rest of my TV watching needs I use Netflix.

    I mainly like the idea of browsing the web, checking email etc from my TV. The addition of apps is nice too. So considering I wouldn’t use it with actual TV content, (cable/satellite etc) is it still worth having Google TV?

    i bought it and returned it a few days later.. when i realized there is no support for 1.4 HDMI (3D Pass thru)

    • uknowme

      Hmmm, that makes me wonder about returning mine.

      • BiGMERF

        Yea that was a real bummer for me…. I love 3D, especially now with Football season here

  • Interpol91

    Can’t wait for this this update! Although I am willing to root my phone I won’t root the Revue. The picture quality I get is great and the lack of support for 3D is not a deal breaker for me.

  • Gone

    I am too excited for this!!

    I just love when Google doesn’t forgets one of their products when it flaws to the public eye. Google TV needs all the support it can be given, the 99$ price of the Revue and this new update, plus more and better apps, should really impulse a boost on sales, at least compared to the current state.
