Logitech tells Gigabyte to stop shipping Revue

Logitech have instructed Gigabyte Technology to stop shipping Revue set top boxes from December 2010 to January 2011 while it waits for Google to complete software updates or release a new version of the Google TV software package.

Market analysts had predicted that shipments of the Revue STB’s would exceed over half a million units by the end of 2010 and when factoring in those also shipped by Sony, the sales of Google TV was estimated to top one million.

Component suppliers in Taiwan however expect Google to be releasing Android 3.0 in the first couple of months in 2011, possibly late February. When this happens supporting suppliers will resume their shipments.

Gigabyte will obviously have their revenue affected by this pause in shipping, until the temporary suspension is lifted.
