Logitech notes Revue to get free GTV soon
Logitech late Thursday quickly stepped in to quell speculation over its Android 3.1 notices on Revue boxes. The Google TV hardware was "prematurely updated" in expecting the new interface, a spokeswoman said. She declined to say when the update would come but promised that the current hardware was getting a "free and automatic update" that would be pushed out later.
No mention was made of a second-generation Revue or other Google TV devices.
The Android 3.1-based update, when it arrives, will add much-requested support for third-party apps, such as video services and games. Widgets and searching through apps are also part of the core update.
