Logitech abandoning Google TV, labels it beta

14 Nov 2011 | Rasmus Larsen |

Logitech was the first manufacturer – together with Sony – to support the Google TV platform with their Revue box. Logitech now says that the Revue box was a big mistake and stops production.

Logitech abandoning Google TV

Logitech has lost more than 100 million USD in a failed Google TV push, and the new CEO labels the first version of Google TV “beta software”. At the same time Logitech discontinues the Revue Google TV box.

Logitech Revue was introduced at $299 but it quickly dropped to just $99 USD after lackluster sales. Logitech’s new CEO, Guerrino De Luca, still calls Google TV a great concept but he does not see it taking off right now.

Sony was also a Google TV partner from the start but Sony has not been successful either. Google TV has just been updated to version 2.0 Honeycomb, introducing a new user interface and TV Apps. Reportedly, LG is considering adopting the new Google TV platform.

Logitech will not manufacture new Revue boxes but Logitech still promises that the current hardware will receive a Honeycomb update before the end of the year.
