Logitech Revue gets October 6 unveiling
Logitech tonight sent an invite to the media for an October 6 event to launch its Google TV box, the Revue. The New York City event is being hosted by Logitech's Executive VP of Products Junien Labrousse and should include a "line of products" for Google TV. What would launch beyond the Revue itself wasn't said, but Android and iOS apps and a keyboard should be part of the plans.
The media hub will provide Google TV to any existing HDTV, up to and including the universal TV and web search, Chrome browser with Flash, DVR integration and Android-based apps. Logitech's hardware will serve as a gateway for a Harmony remote or the equivalent on the smartphone apps. Leaks have recently shown that the device could cost as little as $179 in a Dish TV deal.
