The Logitech Revue site has gone live, and it includes all the details on the Google TV-powered box we've already heard so much about. You won't find much information on Google TV, but what you will find is plenty of information on the Revue itself, as well as its many accessories.

First things first: the Revue is available for pre-order right now, and is priced at $299.99. That price includes both the box and the keyboard; the keyboard has a touchpad and remote controls so you won't need a separate remote (you can check out a picture of the keyboard below).

What do you think of when you hear the word "TV"? Fox News? Family Guy? Creepy Logitech ads?

If you just chose the third answer, it appears that, come October 6th, Logitech will finally have a chance to explain (or excuse) itself for that god-awful advertising campaign. Oh yeah, and the company will also introduce a "line of products for Google TV," which could end up being seriously awesome considering what Google unveiled at the I/O developer conference, but if I were Jerry Quindlend, Logitech CEO, all I'd be thinking of right now is the best way to publicly apologize for this.

Appcelerator-IDC-Q4-Mobile-Developer-Report-1

In June, Appcelerator surveyed 2,700 mobile developers and published the results in a report that we covered. The June report showed that developers prefer to develop for iOS, but that they had a more positive long-term outlook on Android; fast forward three months, and Android has widened its lead in long-term outlook. Further, developers see Android as being more capable, more open, and offering better support for multiple devices.

After running June's report, Appcelerator wanted to get a better look at the "why" behind the results as well as a more in-depth look at how developers view a wider range of devices.

During his keynote speech at IFA, Eric Schmidt made some interesting comments in regards to Android, tablets, and TVs. Specifically, TV's would be shipping with Google TV software on board (rather than as add-on hardware), and tablets will run Chrome OS rather than Android.

That tablets will primarily run Chrome OS may come as a surprise to some people - after all, nearly every tablet that doesn't run Windows (or iOS) runs Android.

Yesterday, Aaron and I attended the Adobe Android Summit, where Adobe, among other things, did a demo of the upcoming Google TV box. Below, you will find Aditya Bansod's whole talk recorded by me in 1080P HD using Canon T2i (love this beast).

For more info on this and other talks, read Aaron's summary report: Adobe Android Summit 2010: "One Web. Any Device."

Unfortunately, the card was formatted as FAT32, so as soon as the videos reached 4GB, T2i shut off recording, resulting in small gaps between all the parts.

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
  • 802.11n

The Revue plays nice with Logitech Harmony remotes and acts as a WiFi access point for your entertainment devices.

Among the myriad wonders and glories unveiled at Google I/O this year, there were a few standouts. One of them is the highly anticipated Google TV.

Google has made it abundantly clear: choosing between the TV and the computer is a bad thing. Very bad, indeed. So, we should put them together in an intuitive way that allows us to enjoy the benefits of both without losing the benefits of either one.
