Logitech adds product page for Google TV box Logitech has added a product page to its website for its new Google TV box. The Logitech Revue is an external device that connects to a television via HDMI, and takes full advantage of everything that Google TV will have to offer. As well as supporting Google TV, the Revue has Logitech's Harmony technology built in to provide integration with a home-entertainment system.
Intel, Sony, and Logitech, together with Best Buy, DISH Network and Adobe, joined Google on stage at the Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco in May, to announce their support for Google TV. With Google TV, consumers will be able to search and watch an expanded universe of content available from a variety of sources including TV providers, the web, their personal content libraries, and mobile applications.

At the time, Sony and Logitech said they would be delivering products based on the Intel Atom CE4100 processor and running Google TV later this year.



To navigate the array of content that will now be available through a single device and on a single screen, Google TV introduces an integrated search experience to help viewers easily find relevant content across over-the-air and pay-TV channel listings, DVR, and the Internet, as well as a picture-in-picture layout to access multiple windows simultaneously.

LogiTech's product page for its first box for Google TV is very short on details for now.

Here's why I think Google's TV project will succeed where similar past attempts (Apple's, for example) haven't: they're partnered up with DISH Network, so they can use their existing infrastructure to reach TV customers. They don't have to reinvent the wheel. This isn't like the iPod, which was a totally new thing - people already have TVs and satellite service, so their impulse to switch providers is lower.

It is pricy. I wonder if it'll stay that high.
