One of the major reasons the Logitech Revue Google TV set-top box didn’t catch on is that it launched for $299, a price point that was hard to swallow for a first-gen device. Logitech bailed and put it on $99 clearance (which is when I got one).
Sony is learning from Logitech’s mistakes and is launching its new NSZ-GS7 Google TV set-top box at $199, a more reasonable price point, especially for a device running the latest version of Google TV. It also comes with a QWERTY keyboard remote with a track pad/button combo on the flip side. Looks like a very nice package, and now you can pre-order one from J&R. No word on when it will ship, but the page does state it’s “coming soon”.
