Details on Logitech Revue Google TV box

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.


What's Inside

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.

If this is done right, Google TV could be the next step for HDTV's. Integrating the internet into TV's just seems like a logical move.

I am really impressed with the Logitech Revue. I've been playing around with it at work (DISH Network) for a couple of months and finally broke down and bought one for the house. Love being able to check email, watch Youtube videos, Twitter, Facebook ect on my HD TV.
