The Logitech Revue was the main piece of hardware available for the initial Google TV rollout. It...didn't do well. It did so poorly, in fact, that Logitech won't be making a followup Google TV device.
In a call with investors and analysts, Logitech CEO Guerrino De Luca talks about the many mistakes the company made with the set-top box, saying that its launch was "a mistake of implementation of a gigantic nature." In the end, it cost them "well over $100M in operating profits." Ouch.
So, because the launch was a disaster, and the product failed to set the world on fire, Logitech is cutting its losses with the entire platform and bowing out of the Google TV game. So don't expect a Revue II anytime soon. And after these revelations about just how bad it did, will any other hardware companies be willing to roll the dice with Google TV?
