Logitech Quashes Revue Suspension Rumors

Google did not tell Logitech to stop Revue-ing


After a whirlwind of rumors took on a life of their own yesterday, Logitech has come forward to confirm that Google in no way intervened with its decision to suspend production of the components to its Revue TV set-top box.

For some reason, Logitech stopped ordering the parts it needs to make new units of its Revue, the first product on the market to use Google TV. It is Google's first big attempt to dominate viewers' living rooms with an operating system for TVs.

But it's been getting lukewarm reviews, and sales of the Revue and Sony's Internet TV - the only other Google TV device - have been very sluggish. Reports have come out that Google wants to go back to the drawing board and fix the software, and even told other TV manufacturers to cancel their Google TV announcements at CES next month.

So when it came out that Logitech suspended Revue production, many jumped to the conclusion that it was at the behest of Google. The company has come forward, however, to categorically deny these rumors.

"At Logitech we usually refrain from commenting on rumors and speculation. But I can’t ignore the recent puzzling speculation that Google has asked Logitech to suspend production of Logitech Revue to address software issues," wrote Logitech VP Ashish Arora on the company's blog.

"Those familiar with our product know that we don’t need to modify the Logitech Revue box to deliver software enhancements ... Logitech Revue boxes purchased at launch in October, as a holiday gift in December or to follow basketball in the spring, will all be the same and will all benefit from the same software updates."


Arora did not, however, address why Logitech did order a suspension of the Revue's components. Regardless, he said Logitech will be at CES with the Revue and Google TV front and center.
