The Google TV box from Logitech ships this month

Logitech officially announced the Logitech Revue Google TV box. Logitech says that it will ship this month. You can pre-order the Logitech Revue for $299.99 on Amazon. At this price you need to think a bit if this is really a great device. Can Google translate its powerful and easy to use web search experience to TV watching?

Google TV merges TV content and web content into one interface. You can seamlessly search across the content no matter what type it is. Besides access to video, TV and web content the Google TV box also supports apps. The pre-installed apps allow you to stream Netflix rentals, listen to Pandora Radio or use Twitter.

The Logitech Revue is also a HD Video calling solution. For that you need the Logitech HDTV Widescreen Video Cam accessory with a pretty high $149.99 price-tag.

The Logitech Revue box comes with a keyboard controller. This is an obvious difference to the way Apple approaches interactive TV. The Apple TV box comes only with a very simple remote with a few buttons. Google TV's search centric model make it actually a complementary solution to bring the web to the living room. I see early adopters getting both boxes. I just hope your TV has enough HDMI ports.

I am actually pretty unsure if the Logitech Revue will sell big or fail. Are we really at the point that we want to watch content on our TVs in an unstructured way?
