During Google I/O, Google announced Google TV. Yesterday, the Logitech Revue – the first Google TV box – passed FCC approval, and as usual, the FCC was kind enough to provide some pictures of the unit.
The unit sports some pretty decent specs:
- Android 2.1
- 1.2 Ghz Atom CPU
- 4 GB Memory
- 2x HDMI 1.3
- 2x USB
- S/PDIF out
- Ethernet (presumably 10/100/1000)
- IR headers
The Revue plays nice with Logitech Harmony remotes and acts as a WiFi access point for your entertainment devices. It’s designed to unify your entertainment devices – TV, receivers, DVR, etc, and also comes with free 720p video chat software (bring your own webcam, though). It will support some (if not all?) existing Android apps, and allow users to control everything via iPhone or Android devices, as well as the aforementioned Harmony remote and other IR devices.
No solid date or pricing info is available now, but expect it to ship this year for less than $500.
