We’ve seen the Logitech Revue on sale before, but not like this. Logitech has announced a substantial price drop for the Revue, which is now available for $99 down from $250. This places the Revue in the same price range as the Apple TV and the Roku 2 XS. The move comes during increased speculation about the success of Google TV, and anticipation over when the Honeycomb update will actually be released. Logitech made the following brief statement:
As you know, the Logitech Revue gives people a streamlined experience with their HDTV and the Web, video calling, apps and more. And stay tuned: with the expected release of Version 2 of Google TV later this summer, the Logitech Revue connected-TV experience will get even richer. When V2 goes live, all new and existing Logitech Revue users will automatically receive the updated version, built on Android 3.1. Among other benefits, V2 will offer a simplified user experience and access to the Android Market.
There is no word at this time as to whether or not the price will go up again once Honeycomb finally lands on the Revue, but given all the setbacks Google TV has faced since it was first announced last year, this is unlikely. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
