Logitech Revue at Amazon and Best Buy, Sony GoogleTV leakOctober 7, 2010: 10:40 AM ET
GoogleTV is steadily becoming more real.
Amazon (AMZN) and Best Buy (BBY) now have the Logitech Revue posted for pre-order for $299 with shipping dates in the 2-3 week range. They also carry the peripherals like the $149 video camera and the $129 Mini Keyboard. (This should have been the standard keyboard in my opinion.) Logitech also offers pre-orders on its own site.
Update: Sonyinsider has changed their story, saying that the 46-inch will cost $1399
Sony will be offering 4 different Internet TVs – 24′, 32′, 40′, and 46′ models:
As far as pricing, get ready to shell out $1299.99 for the 32′ (NSX-32GT1), $1499.99 for 40′ (NSX-40GT1) and $1899.99 for 46′ (NSX-46GT1). Unfortunately, pricing info was unavailable for 24GT1 model, however we assume it should be under one grand.
Those prices are painfully high, unless Sony is trying to position this as only a high-end product. That'd be great news for Logitech (LOGI). These prices are likely to get discounted over the next few months. I wouldn't be surprised to see a $250 Revue by Christmas and 20-30% knocked off the price of Sony's MSRP.
Interestingly, there isn't any information on Sony's BluRay player. It should come in under $500 and might give the Logitech Revue a run for its money.
We'll find out more at Sony's GoogleTV announcement on October 12th.
