First Google TV set-top box unveiled

Logitech, master of accessories and peripherals, has officially unveiled the Logitech Revue, the first set-top box and range of accessories for the upcoming web-based Google TV platform.

Unveiled by Logitech’s Executive Vice Principal Junien Labrousse at the company’s New York-based press conference yesterday, the Revue set-top box, due to cost $299 (£187), will bring full flash-web browsing and a host of streaming channels and apps to a USA market later this month.

Compatible with a number of DVRs, the web-based TV streamer will also feature Google’s Voice Search technologies, the possibility of split screen viewing and browsing as well as DNLA server compatibility. The Revue box will ship with a lightweight QWERTY keyboard that features the same functionality as the company’s Harmony universal remote.

Launched alongside the Revue set-top box, Logitech announced the arrival of a number of Google TV accessories including remote control apps for iPhone, iPad and Goggle Android run devices, a Mini Controller and a 720p HD webcam, priced at $149 that will allow users to hold video conferences across the service.
