Before giving Logitech's Keyboard Case a go, I was skeptical about how useful a separate keyboard would be for my Galaxy Tab 10.1. My main concern about keyboards in general was portability - I picked up the Galaxy Tab 10.1 because of its slim design, easy portability, and Android functionality, so carrying around a bulky accessory was out of the question, as it seemed to defeat the purpose.

Logitech and Zagg have created perhaps the most elegant solution to this problem that I've seen yet with the Keyboard Case.

About a month and a half ago, Logitech drastically reduced the price of its Google TV unit, the Revue, from $299 to a much more acceptable $99 in order to boost sales. At that time, it was also promised that Android 3.1 would be hitting the set-top box sometime "this summer," which has since been pushed back to the end of September.

While we've already seen one Honeycomb leak for the Revue surface, it was quite buggy and not entirely stable.

When most people get a new device of any kind, one of the first things that they start looking for is good accessories. For tablets, some of the more sought after add-ons include keyboards for added functionality and cases to protect the investment, but the brilliant minds over at Logitech decided that it would be much more practical to combine the two with the new keyboard case designed specifically for the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Heads-up, Revue owners! We've got a nice little surprise for you all this morning. A member of the GTVHacker forums has posted about a leaked beta of Android 3.1 for the Google TV device, and the good news is that you can download it right now!

The update looks like is an official one (signed and hosted by Google/Logitech), as you don't need to be rooted to flash this on to your device; you can apply it like you would any other operating system update with no root necessary.

The Logitech Revue, originally highly overpriced at $299.99, was recently reported to be going down in price heavily to a sweet spot of $99.99 that it should have shipped with in the first place in my opinion.

As of today, the price drop is in effect, so you can order the Revue for $99.99 with free 2-day shipping directly from Logitech by following this link.

Update: It's now up for the same price on Amazon and at Best Buy.

Logitech recently released its Q1 earnings for fiscal year 2012, and lets just say that the company has seen better days. Sales are continuing to decline, and the company is facing a $34 million charge due to an upcoming price reduction of its Google TV box, the Revue. In order to promote interest in the device, Logitech will be dropping the price from an outrageous $249 down to a more reasonable $99, putting it in the same ballpark with Apple TV and Roku TV.

We now have yet another reason to rot in front of our televisions: Google will be expanding their Market to include its experimental television platform, Google TV. Ashish Arora, Product Manager of Google TV at Logtitech, broke the news at OTTCon on Tuesday.

“It will happen shortly.” said Arora during a panel discussion. “It’s a given that it will happen this year, 100 percent. We’re talking about a very short term.” Arora hopes the Market will bring about some ambitious ideas into its television sets.

It's taken months of blood, sweat, and tears, but the Logitech Revue has finally been rooted!

Before you get too excited, I must warn you that the process isn't for the faint of heart (you'll have to physically crack open the Revue's box and solder some wires in), and you'll need a brand new device that hasn't received any firmware updates.

That said, there will undoubtedly be those of you eager to give it a shot, so if your device qualifies, go ahead - instructions lie below.

While Android hackers figured out how to boot Sony's Google TVs into recovery mode sometime ago, the Logitech Revue has been waiting for something similar. But now the wait is over, thanks to @Stericson, who took no more than a day to accomplish the task on his Revue unit, sent to him by Google.

While we are now one small baby step closer to having root access, I feel obligated to remind you that Sony's Google TVs have yet to see any real attempts at root or software mods of any kind, despite having had access to recovery mode for over a month now.

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).
