We've finally got official details on the Google TV equipped Revue, and they were well worth waiting for.
If you were trying to decide between the Boxee Box, a Roku player, an Apple TV, and the countless other devices available to fill the need of getting digital content, the choice may have just gotten easier. The Logitech Revue has been announced, detailed, and priced, and it's nothing short of impressive.
The box itself doesn't come as a huge surprise. It's small, sleek, and does just what we expected it to do. It lets you search through a wide variety of sources for the content you want and allows you to experience the internet right on your TV.
Things get that much better if you've got a DVR that's compatible with the Revue. Instead of just searching the web, you'll be able to search your DVR and play video straight from the Revue. No need to switch inputs or fumble through menus.
Of course, you'll need a way to control it all. That's why the Revue comes bundled with a wireless keyboard controller with a trackpad built in. It's a simple way to control the device, though not the most compact.
For an added $129 you can pick up the six inch long Mini Controller that's got more of a smartphone layout. You can also pick up a free app for your iPhone or Android phone that will give you full control over the device.
The Revue will be available by the end of this month and is available for pre-order today at a price of $299.
