Rumor: Logitech Suspends Production of Revue Google TV Box

[UPDATE 12/27/2010: Logitech has gone on the record to deny these claims, so it looks like this rumor was unsubstantiated.]

When Google TV first hit the market, I wanted it pretty bad. I want to be able to get lots of online content like Hulu and other video sites on my TV in the living room, but I don’t want a PC in there. I was really interested in the Logitech Revue box until the sites I wanted like Hulu and networks blocked users from accessing video using Google TV.

Things aren’t looking good for Google TV right now. Google has told partners to not unveil any new hardware at CES while it gets new software ready for Google TV. Presumably, the software is to fix the gripes reviewers and early users had with the system like poor search layout and other complaints. I hope the fix will also come with a deal that lets Google TV back into video streaming sites or Google TV will still be worthless to me.

DigiTimes is now reporting that Logitech has told Gigabyte, who makes the Revue box, to temporarily stop production until the new version of the Google TV software lands. That software update is expected sometime in January.
