The Logitech Revue was announced in May at the Google I/O conference, and it was finally revealed today. The Revue is now available for pre-order and will ship at the end of the month. One of these fancy boxes will cost you $299, or $179 if you have Dish Network. As part of the package, consumers will get the Revue, keyboard, IR blaster, and an HDMI cable. The device will also be able to be controlled through a free Logitech Harmony app available for the iPhone and Android. Several other accessories including a webcam have been announced. The Revue will feature Google TV, an Android based system that integrates web content with traditional television channels. Several apps will be available on launch for popular services such as Netflix and Pandora. Google is also engaged in discussions with Hulu to bring that service to Google TV as well.
