Logitech Revue owners are finally getting a sweet serving of Honeycomb. Early this morning, Logitech announced that the Android 3.1 update for the Revue is currently being pushed out to all users, delivering a brand new UI and access to the Android Market. The Honeycomb update for the Revue makes it easier to find TV shows and movies and expands the device’s native capabilities with new apps from the market. Right now, there are roughly 50 applications that have been optimized for Google TV, but we have a feeling that number will jump substantially once developers realize how many consumers picked up the Revue when Logitech dropped the price to $99.
We are pleased to announce that we will begin delivering a free software update of the Android 3.1 platform to Logitech Revueâ„¢ with Google TVâ„¢ this week. If you’re already a Revue user, simply ensure your unit is turned on and connected to the Web, and accept the update that pops up onto your TV screen. New customers are expected to receive this version automatically upon activation.Logitech
Let us know how you’re enjoying the new Android 3.1 update on your Logitech Revue. We’d also love to hear what your new favorite Google TV app is. We know there are a lot of great gadgets to choose from this holiday season, but the $99 Logitech Revue running Honeycomb will probably be the most useful and memorable gift you buy this year.
