Logitech Revue Honeycomb Update Rolling Out This Week

Logitech Revue owners may have a hard time believing this, but according to Logitech’s blog, the Honeycomb update will roll out to units starting this week. After what seems like almost a year of waiting, everyone with some sort of Google TV product will finally have the Android Market, apps, and a completely new experience on a product that got off to a pretty rocky start.

There doesn’t appear to be a way to force the update, but you can check as many times as you’d like in your Settings panel.

To see an overview of what you can expect with this update, check out this highlight post. Then be sure to check out our hands-on walk-through of it here.

    Just got my update this morning… hopefully I will spend some more time with it later… but for me it just seems like an interface update and the market seems like a joke since nothing is compatible…

    Got the update this evening. Had the beta release. Update downloaded automatically and it broke the Chrome Browser. Did a factory reset and setup, now it is updated.

    These comments are hilarious and I am just as ridiculous as all of you are.
    Google said a GTV update was coming in the summer. It came in early fall instead, but not for every device (just like always). They tweeted that revue update would come in ‘the coming weeks’ on Nov 11th – it has been less than 4 weeks now and here it comes.Yes they have been a bit late with the update, but judging by some of the comments you would think Google conspired with Logitech to kill everyone’s kitten.You know what? I bought a brand new Audi just over a year ago and I paid a lot more than I did for my Google TV box. I have yet to receive a software upgrade enhancing the mediocre bluetooth connectivity and the lack of music playback over bluetooth altogether. We should be getting angry about stuff like that.That being said.. I CAN’T WAIT for the update to hit my revue.

    Just called Logitech, it should be rolling out to all during the week they are going by area so they don’t overload the server, but the update is live.

    You can thank me for this.  I returned mine last week only so the rest of you would get this update.  You’re welcome.  

    • Peter Yee

      Thanks, Tim. Now, could you please switch to an ATT Galaxy S II so VZW will release the Galaxy Nexus?

    • Ivanrooni

      Your loss. Our gain. Thanks!

    I know it’s on logitech’s blog… but that doesn’t mean that this isn’t fake. Remember when they said it would be “days” after the sony update?

  • Ericmarkwilliams

    It’s sad that my Review is getting Honeycomb before the Galaxy Nexus is released on VZW. Didn’t see that one coming.

  • Ericmarkwilliams

    This is for real. Last night Engadget posted a tip and photo then people claimed it was fake. Today the official post went up…  http://blog.logitech.com/2011/12/07/logitech-brings-next-version-of-google-tv-to-logitech-revue/

    What is the difference between the Revue and the Sony Blu-Ray player.  People keep saying they like the Revue better.  I just want to know, because I am in the market for one of these devices.

    • Anonymous

      revue is a cheaper set top box (now) and i believe sony only has google tv as an integrated tv and as well as a blu-ray player.

      also logitech publicly called google tv a failure a short while ago, basically regretting having anything to do with it and saying they lost a f*ckton of money.  so don’t expect any more updates or support past this update.

      • Ivanrooni

        Perhaps on the further updates after this one. However, for $99 it can’t be beat! At least not yet… The $299 price for the Sony does not trump the $99 price of the Revue. Yes, Logitech will be dumping the Revue, but others will pick up where they left off.
        Google TV is not a failure contrary to Logitech’s Sour Grapes over the process. I bet if they had made the Revue less expensive folks would have flocked to it much earlier than the dump… $99 price.

    Hopefully mine updates before I get my Nexus Friday.  I’d hate to go into the weekend with something still running 2.x.  =P

    yay! finally!

  • http://twitter.com/Justinwrites Justin True Anderson

    My question is will it have access to Google Movies and such?

    • Derek Stiles

      Since it has access to the Android Market, it will.

      • http://twitter.com/Justinwrites Justin True Anderson

        Huh.  That might almost make it worth the pick up…  Sorta.  Not carrying an cable TV and not having a DVR sorta discouraged me from it.

        • Anonymous

          Wouldn’t that encourage you to buy it? I know a big part of Google TV is its ability to integrate with your cable or satellite box, but if you lack both, wouldn’t the prospect of having extra sources of TV content entice you to buy?

          • Derek Stiles

            Yep.  I use it in my bedroom where I do not have a cable box or dvr.  Sure I could do lots more with those things but the TV would be useless without the revue.

    Ice cream sandwich can’t be far behind…

      I have a feeling ICS isn’t going to make it to the Revue, considering Logitech has actually thrown in the towel (officially). After this the box will see no more updates I would imagine.

      • Anonymous

        Which sucks because it really is a good device.  I honestly like it better than the Sony Blu-ray player with GoogleTV that I just got.  If Logitech would have been smarter about the price at the beginning then the Revue would have been a big profit maker for them I think.  I mean they are still being stupid about the accessory pricing as well.  I mean the hand held keyboard costs as much as the device itself.  Seriously Logitech?

        • Jarred Sutherland

          I agree, I really like my Revue (and will LOVE it because I can play MKV’s with DTS now). I even bought it at the original price point (well before it dropped) and still don’t regret it. I would have used a power sucking PC in it’s place otherwise, and the Revue fit’s nicely with my TV where the PC wouldn’t.

      • Peter Kelly

        Whoops.  I forgot the /s.  Given that the market was supposed to be available early 2011 (ball dropped by Google), and Logitech took 6 weeks from source code to release, only the dev community has a chance to bring ICS to the neat little box.

    Sorry, Logitech. I really don’t trust a word you say. I’ll believe it when my Revue begins the update process…whenever that might be.

  • http://twitter.com/bigtexatx Bigtex ATX

    Wonder how this will work for those of us that did the manual leaked updates earlier.

    • Derek Stiles

      You’ll have to wait until developers release an update for you.

    • Kurt Thompson

      I was looking this morning and the forum I use is kind of a ghost town. (gtvhacker) Is there a better place for info?

  • Anonymous

    Logitech finally heard all my angry tweets, and decided to actually work on it!

  • Anonymous

    It’ll be nice to have both of my GoogleTV devices (Revue and the Sony Blu-ray player) on the same software.  I still think I like the Revue better though…  I just wish the Logitech hand held keyboard wasn’t as much as the device.

  • Derek Stiles

    YES!! Thank you little eight pounds six ounces baby Jesus in your manger!
