We’re already familiar with what Logitech’s Revue box with Google TV is capable of, but the question on everyone’s mind is when will it be available and for how much? Well, fortunately for us today Logitech answered those questions and showed off not only the Revue box, but unleashed a myriad of peripherals to go along side of it.
First things first: the Revue will release at the end of this month (October) and cost $299.99. If you’re so inclined you can preorder it from Logitech, Amazon or BestBuy right now.
The Mini Controller costs $129.99. It has a set of dedicated commands built just for Google TV and sports a diminutive sized keyboard, trackpad (doubles as a directional pad), play/pause dedicated buttons and illuminated keys. Inside is a rechargeable battery that Logitech says is good for up to two weeks, but that will of course vary with use.
The TV Cam is less exciting, but brings 720p video calls right to your TV. What you can’t see are two digital, directional microphone for hopefully superior audio quality even when sitting on the couch feet away and a wide angle lens with a 5x digital zoom. Not to be overlooked is the Carl Zeiss optics, which have long existed in Sony cameras. It will set you back $149.99.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
