Logitech has denied reports that Google asked it to halt production of the Revue box until pending software “issues” were addressed.
“Those familiar with our product know that we don’t need to modify the Revue box to deliver software enhancements. [As such], each of our customers will receive periodic over-the-air updates whenever Google and Logitech release changes to the TV platform,” Logitech VP Ashish Arora explained in an official blog post.
“[Of course], Revue boxes purchased at launch in October, as a holiday gift in December or to follow basketball in the spring, will all be the same and [should] benefit from the same software updates.”
According to Arora, the two corporations continue to have a “collaborative, effective working relationship” as they monitor consumer feedback and work together on “enhancements” to the Google TV platform.
“We at Logitech are [certainly] enthusiastic about Google TV and our role in bringing this new platform to US consumers.
“[And] after a brief holiday break, [we] will be heading to CES in Las Vegas in early January, where Logitech looks forward to demonstrating how Google is transforming the TV-watching experience.” [[Logitech]]
