Logitech freezing production of Revue over Google TV?

Rumors are surfacing that Logitech has ordered a production freeze on its Revue set-top box until Google finishes upgrades to Google TV. Blog Digitimes.com says Logitech ordered Gigabyte Technology, which makes components for the device, to suspend production of the Revue until sometime in January. Nancy Morrison, a Logitech spokeswoman, told CNET she couldn't comment on the report about the production suspension but said Logitech continues to ship the device to consumers. Earlier this week, The New York Times reported that Google had asked several TV manufacturers, including Toshiba and LG Electronics, to postpone plans to unveil their Internet-connected sets at next month's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas because Google wants to overhaul the Google TV software platform. The platform lets users access the Web on a TV. The system has met with mixed reviews because of its complexity and its inability to access content from the largest broadcast networks. The access issue isn't a technology problem. The networks have chosen to block the software from presenting their shows.
