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.<br /><br /><h3>Logitech abandoning Google TV</h3>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.<br /><br /><p align=center><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/logitechrevue.jpg" alt="Logitech Revue"><br><i>Logitech Revue is dead</i></p><br />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. <br /><br />Sony was also a Google TV partner from the start but Sony has not been successful either. Google TV has just been updated to <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1315907188 target=_blank><b>version 2.0 Honeycomb</b></a>, introducing a new user interface and TV Apps. Reportedly, LG is <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1321262007 target=_blank><b>considering adopting</b></a> the new Google TV platform.<br /><br />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.
