Logitech Revue with Google TV Gets Hands On


As we are drawing closer to the holiday season many of us that were at Google’s I/O conference in May or watched the keynotes via YouTube are getting ready for the next revolution in television. Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt made all the launch partners (Logitech included) promise that Google TV powered devices would be available “before the holidays.” Many of us are hoping that the Logitech Revue will be available by Black Friday, but no release dates have been given at this time. The good news is we are starting to see them creeping into the wild and getting some time with our fellow technophiles!

The beta test units have gone out and are landing on the doorsteps of the lucky elite as we speak. The initial packaging was “brown box style” as it seems the marketing department is still working on the final packaging. The box contained what should give us a rough idea of the typical contents of the retail packaging.

  • IR Remote Blaster
  • Custom Logitech Revue Wireless Keyboard/Mouse (Trackpad) combo
  • HDMI Cable


“When you get right down to it, this thing has infinite possibilities, many of which are not unique to this product alone.

    These devices NEED a tuner (QAM, Dish, etc.) before they’re worth getting.

    I want a device that does everything my PS3 and DVR does, all in one.

    THIS guy gets a Revue beta? He’s got his components sitting on a chair for $@#@* sakes! You’d think he could at least figure out that if you’re going to record something, you might want the lights on. As for the box, gimme gimme gimme! This is the solution I want for watching all those free episodes on all those networks’ websites.
