Under 1 million Google TV devices are actively used According to info hidden in Google's own data, there are less than 1 million Google TV devices being actively used.
Also notable is the fact that Logitech's Revue set-top is the most used GTV device.

GigaOM found the figures in Google's Android Market stats, which publishes rounded numbers on every application's install base. Each Google TV device comes with pre-installed apps, which Google lists in the Android Market, as well. The TV and Movies app (which is built-in and is the most important app in the platform) is listed as installed on 500,000-to-1 million devices which implies that active users are under 1 million, although that number has a big range.

Data mining firm Xyologic seemed to confirm the fact, estimating that the most important pre-installed apps are on around 600,000-900,000 Google TV devices.

The Logitech Revue, which launched at $250 but was quickly discontinued and sold at $99, is the most popular device, controlling 50-70 percent of the market (depending on what figures you see).

Second-generation Google TV devices are rolling out soon, with Vizio, Sony and LG all announcing TVs with ARM chips and the platform, which will bring down the price.
