At a press conference this week Logitech CEO unveiled the world’s first Google TV set-top box. The Revue is available today for “pre-order” online at Logitech.com, BestBuy.com, Amazon.com and, in 2 to the 3 weeks on retail shelves. With this set-top box, the almost 30-year old company targets the 60 million HD TV households in the US. “Google TV is the first platform that integrates the Web, broadcast TV and applications seamlessly,” said Logitech CEO Gerry Quindlen.
But at $300, the Logitech Revue is going to be a hard sell. So far, no manufacturers, including Apple, succeeded in selling a set-top box at this pricepoint.
