Rumor: Logitech Temporarily Suspends Revue Production

Posted Mon Dec 27, 2010 at 04:00 PM PST by Dick Ward

Like everyone who already bought one, they're waiting for an update to Google TV.

Google TV's launch was less than spectacular, especially considering all of the powerful companies that got behind it. It seemed so promising, but fell short of expectations. Google is working on an update that should make a big difference to customers, but until then it looks like Logitech is shutting things down.

In fact, according to DigiTimes, Logitech ordered a shutdown of Revue production earlier this month. The company was expecting around 500,000 units sold by the end of 2010, but if production has indeed shut down, it's clear that they're falling very short of that mark.

Since the Google TV update - originally expected to be launched in time for the Consumer Electronics Show in January - is now coming later, it's unclear what to expect from any of the companies involved.
