Logitech officially drops Revue price to $99 and this giving prospective customers something awfully tempting to consider alongside the prospect of running Honeycomb on their TV right away. Logitech promises that when the Android 3.1 update comes to Google TV later this summer ustomers can expect an even richer experience than they’ve already gotten on the struggling platform……………..
Since you recently wrote about the Logitech Revue, I wanted to let you know that the device will be available for $99, starting on Sunday, July 31. Also stay tuned for the expected release of Version 2 of Google TV later this summer. When Google TV version 2 goes live, all new and existing Logitech Revue users will automatically receive the update, built on Android 3.1. Among other benefits, V2 will offer a simplified user experience and access to the Android Market. When Logitech‘s Q1 financial results were reported last week, we stated that returns for Logitech Revue were greater than sales. Some people thought this meant that there were more consumers returning their Logitech Revue products in Q1 than were purchasing the product. This is simply not the case. Remember that Logitech sells mostly to distributors and retailers, not consumers. Since we introduced Logitech Revue in October 2010, consumer returns for the product have averaged at levels comparable to other Logitech products.
