Logitech Revue: New & Improved with Android 3.1.. Sorta

Since its release, the Logitech Revue has been quite popular (and even more so since Logitech dropped the price to $99), and it appears that it’s being updated.. sorta. The box above is one of many that have arrived at a major electronics retailer (it’s unclear which one), with a shiny new sticker in the corner that boasts Android 3.1 and the Android Market. It was later determined that the devices are not running either 3.1 or the Market, but they’re waiting for an update.

So what exactly does this mean? Well for one thing, you can still pick up a Logitech Revue for $99. It also gives us two possible meanings:

  1. Google is planning to officially update the Revue with Honeycomb 3.1 and the Market.
  2. Logitech or Google accidentally shipped a bundle of Revues with false advertising on them.

No word from Google or Logitech on such an update, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed. Until then, you could always pick up a Revue on the cheap and get some Honeycomb love the other way. More on this as it develops.

So what do you think? Is Google planning an update, or is it just a fluke? Sound off in the comments!

    Logitech confirmed on their forums that the devices did not actually ship with 3.1 on them, and that the stickers were suppose to be put on the devices AFTER honeycomb rolled out on existing devices.
