Logitech's Revue Google TV box is now available for pre-order for $299, revealing a host of new features—HD calling, a wide array of controls, myriad apps, and—if you order today, it'll arrive by the end of the month.
We now know the full extent of the box's hardware capabilities:
• HDMI 1.3 with 1080p, 60fps output
• 2 USB ports (allowing for added local Google TV storage)
• 802.11a/b/g/n wireless connectivity
• Integrated support for the Logitech Harmony remote
• SPDIF audio out
• Ethernet connectivity
How Much It Costs
The Revue box itself plus the keyboard is priced at $300, the mini controller at $130, and the smartphone apps are already available for free. (If you need another keyboard, it's $100.) The TV cam is pricey, no doubt, at $150. The Revue setup will be available for preorder from Best Buy and Amazon, shipping this month.
