Logitech Revue cut to 199 at Amazon as 3.1 comes

Logitech hoped to move its current-generation Google TV hardware Friday by dropping the price of the Revue to $199 at Amazon. The $100 price drop is likely to help clear a path for future hardware based on Android 3.1 but also makes it the least expensive Google TV hardware to date. It may also be an admission of much lower than expected sales an an attempt to pump sales for the next several weeks.

The Revue should be upgradeable to Android 3.1. Accordingly, Logitech's Azmat Ali said this week that he expected many of the new OS updates to have a significant impact on his company's Google TV hardware. The support for extra USB hardware could lead to support for gamepads, mice, new keyboards, and other peripherals beyond the stock input.

Bluetooth mice will also work, Ali said.

He didn't promise for certain that the existing Revue will be upgraded, though via Engadget]
