Google TV 2.0 update coming to Sony next week, Logitech Revue later

Logitech appears more than ready for Google TV's Honeycomb update, but according to a new blog post from the Google TV team, Sony's TVs and set-top boxes will be getting it first starting next week. The Logitech Revue will follow "soon thereafter". The updated post outlines some of the new Google TV features, including Android Market support and an improved user interface. In an interesting bit of humility, the post admits that the original Google TV software "wasn't perfect," and focuses on the simpler homescreen with customizable video and app shortcuts. Search functions have also been refined, allowing for a broad search across live TV, Netflix, YouTube, HBO GO and other video services. It will also recommend content similar to what you've already watched, a la Netflix's recommendation engine. A new customized YouTube app will compliment the upcoming Google TV apps that will spring up on the Android Market. The 3.1 Honeycomb update has been a long time coming, but Google TV users' wait is almost over. Logitech appears ready to send their Revue set-top boxes to retail stores with the software pre-loaded, and developers are already working on Google TV apps via the expanded Android SDK. Google also mentioned that some much-needed new partner and device announcements would be coming in the next few months.

The Logitech Revue is now hitting retail stores again with an updated box. This time right front and center it says Android 3.1 Honeycomb and the Android Market -- I guess it's time I go buy one.

If there's one thing that's advancing at radically enticing speed in the Android world, it's gaming. Think about the games you were playing on Android a year ago, then watch this video. You'll find that not only is the game Riptide GP, a game we've looked at several times before still an awesome game, we've got it updated to the newest version available and, what do you know, it's got the ability to work with 3rd party controllers. We got a nice package from NVIDIA containing the Logitech Wireless Gamepad F710 for some USB-connected action and we were on our way! Not before getting those controls calibrated to our precise wave-riding calibrations right first though, you know we love our calibrations.

Logitech Revue Ad with a Creepy Kevin Bacon [Part 2]

Uh oh, looks like Google TV is at it again with the awesome Kevin Bacon commercial. For those that missed the first one you can read about and see it here. The Logitech Revue is the widely popular Google TV set top that has been selling quite well. Google reported around 90,000 in Q4. Back in December Google released the "Biggest Kevin Bacon Fan" video and it had a lot of mixed reviews as it was a little creepy. I liked the ending though.

Android Market now on Logitech Revue via Brute Force Hack

So you've in the jailbreak mood and you've got a hankering for a job that requires not only hacks of your device on the inside, but physical changes on your outside as well. How about a Logitech Revue jailbreak, one that requires a NAND format, a soldering iron, and a completely virgin device - aka one that's never even been POWERED ON before? Sounds like a challenge to me.
