Logitech's Google TV Box Gets a Name

Posted Fri Jun 18, 2010 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

After a long naming process, it's now called the Logitech Revue with Google TV.

Logitech spent some time getting the name just right for its new Google TV box. "At Logitech, we’re known for certain kinds of products," writes Ashish Arora on the official Logitech blog. But, he says, the Google TV box does everything they're known for and more.

"So it couldn’t just be the Harmony Box or Squeezebox TV or, even worse, the Logitech TV Hub (although believe me, we’ve discussed them all)," adds Arora.

So now it's the Logitech Revue with Google TV. The inspiration for the name came from the variety show style revues that were popular during the early 20th century.

That's the only big update for now though. We'll find out a lot more this fall when Google TV products start to hit the shelves.
