Logitech Revue production frozen? Although unconfirmed, it appears that Logitech may be ordering a production freeze on its Google TV set-top box, the Revue.
Digitimes says the company has already ordered component maker Gigabyte Technology to freeze production until at least January.

Logitech says it continues to ship the set-top to consumers, but will not comment on any alleged production suspensions.

Over the course of the week, a number of reports claimed Google has asked manufacturers to delay their first Google TV devices and HDTVs until the search giant can overhaul the platform.

Google TV has seen mediocre reviews since the Revue launched in November mainly due to broadcasters like ABC CBS, NBCU and Fox blocking their content to the platform.

The Logitech Revue sells for $250.

I thought the main reason was the price, and the blocked networks were secondary...google TV may be better technically, but Apple TV only costs $99.

Apple TV != Google TV
They are not even similar.
