Logitech Revue packaging boasts Android 3.1, Android Market for “new and improved” Google TV


After slashing the prices down to a mere $99, the Logitech Revue became the best alternative option for Google TV. Not to mention the fact that Logitech promised to upgrade this little device to the Honeycomb-based version Google plans to release soon.

We were expecting this update to come in September. Neither Google nor Logitech have made any other announcements since then. September came and left, and now October is close to its end. We’re still waiting patiently, but it seems the wait might soon be over. Logitech has started to make packaging that advertises the inclusion of Android 3.1 and the Android Market.

This was found at an unnamed major electronics store. According to Logitech, boxes with these labels are not supposed to be on the sales floor yet. This label is just a sticker, but stores are not supposed to have them out yet.

It’s definitely disappointing to see these boxes advertise something the product does not yet have. Even if the update was available, you’d still have to go through the update. Most wouldn’t mind, but it might be a bit confusing for some consumers.

Looking on the bright side, this should mean the update is close to being released. We’ll have to wait some more and see what happens. Those Google TV apps are definitely building up; you should have enough for your living room big screen.

If you want to get ready, you might want to pay the 99 smackers for a new Logitech Revue. It’s a no-brainer if you want the new Google TV software without purchasing another TV. What do you guys think? Will this update finally be coming soon? Have you grown impatient yet?

    I’m really looking forward to having an excuse to turn my Google TV on again.

            I mean I guess you could buy a PS3 keyboard but pffffft.

          Netflix is better on GTV than even SONYs own version on the internet connected bravias….since i got the revue i havent touched the bravia internet……its THAT good.

      • http://www.technogasms.com Sean Riley

        Missed this one, yeah having the keyboard front and center didn’t meet with wife approval so the PS3 is the main media device. The one thing that the Google TV gets pulled out for right now is the HBO Go app.

    • ihatefanboys

      internet on your TV is reason alone to turn it on….. i browse the net, watch netflix….stream FREE movies and TV from peer to peer sites…..listen to music on pandora……etc…i literally use it every day…..dont understand anyone that wouldnt….

  • SherlockHomeboy

    Why even build Honeycomb for this? Why not just go straight to Ice Cream Sandwich?

  • TUG265

    I use my GTV for Netflix’s and youtube, but I just hooked up my external hard drive to it and now it got a huge selection of movies and on there so I’m loving it all over again.

    • Jorge Moreno

      What kind of movies can you see?… mkv files???

  • adamblue

    So will this play any file format? I’d prefer streaming with something other than my Xbox/PS3, and if this also allows for YouTube/Hulu/Spotify/etc, I’m down.

  • Hollywood

    Why does the revue look like a burrito?

  • Mattt

    Think I’ll wait for next gen hardware, but will check it out at the store to see if this software update fixed the lag I experienced when it was first released.

  • uknowme

    I’m hoping the update fixes the incompatibility with some Comcast boxes. Mine is collecting dust.

  • Mark

    Is this thing any good. I’m thinking of copping one. Do I need cable for it to work or just an internet modem? Thanks.

    • JBC

      Well to watch regular TV, you need cable. For the other features just internet.

  • pritams

    good try..but fail/..
