Although we’ve been talking about it for months, today it’s official.
Today, we unveiled our complete line of products for Google TV – and they will be available by the end of October.
We know that you have access to an enormous amount of content, from more places than ever before. And that has made finding what you want to watch or controlling the devices to do it, more complex. With this line of products, the Google TV experience, and TV watching in general, is about to get so much easier for the millions of U.S. households with an HDMI-ready TV.
The star of these Smart TV products is Logitech Revue with Google TV. It includes a compact companion box that connects to an HDTV and a Logitech Keyboard Controller – a wireless compact keyboard that’s perfect for Google TV search in your living room.
But watching is just the beginning. HD video calling is now living room-ready. The Logitech TV Cam
plugs right into the Revue companion box via USB and works with the Logitech Vid HD app for Google TV. But if you add it to your living room, you’ll be able to call your friends and family as long as they have Logitech Vid HD
installed – whether they’re on a Mac, PC or another Logitech Revue. (And it’s a free download for people who haven’t gotten it yet.)
We love the included Keyboard Controller because it’s the most intuitive way most people search. But if you’re someone who prefers an even smaller, sleek form factor and thumb typing, you can add the Logitech Mini Controller
as another controller. If you want a truly personal controller in your pocket, we’ll be releasing apps for your Android phone or iPhone (or iPod Touch or iPad) that has Harmony-style activity controls.
But now that it’s official, you don’t have to just hear it from this blog post. Go ahead and read more about the products
. Or even preorder something for yourself.
