Logitech CEO Says There Will be No Revue 2

He says the idea is great, but it's just not something that Logitech is going to pursue.

Let's just put it out there. The Logitech Revue was a complete flop. It was priced too high, the software didn't work right, and sales reflected the disappointing final product. After a significant price cut and an operating system update things may improve, but it's a bit too late for that.

Logitech's new CEO Guerrino De Luca says there's not going to be a followup to the Revue. The marketing push behind the box, the development costs and the lack of sales cost the company quite a bit of cash.

Interestingly, he says that the Google TV concept is right on the money and that it's going to find itself as a success eventually. That, or whatever comes after it. Still, he says that it's not the sort of thing that's in Logitech's future. In terms of peripherals and accessories though, Logitech will be right on board.
