Logitech Revue: Production halts on Google TV boxes

Is Google working on a complete overhaul in the face of poor sales?

Just days after word that Google has asked TV manufacturers to hold off on unveiling new Google TV sets, a source close to Logitech has revealed that production of its Revue set top boxes has been halted, as we wait for Google to update the software.

Whilst concrete numbers remain a secret, Google TV certainly hasn’t been the world-conquering entertainment revolution its makers and partners were hoping for. The blame for this seems to be lying in the software, which lacks the polish that Apple’s famous for.

Gigabyte, who make the Revue boxes for Logitech, has reportedly halted production until march 2011, under the grounds that Google may choose to integrate the upcoming Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) into Google TV’s next iteration.

Google TV still isn’t out in the UK, but is expected half way through next year. Will you buy into the VoD platform? Let us know on the T3 Twitter feed.
