Logitech Revue with Google TV coming out September 29 for $299?

The Android powered Google TV platform has received its closest release so far, according to an anonymous source at least.  The Logitech Revue, which is powered by Google TV, is slated for release on September 29th, with a retail price of $299.99.  However, Dish customers will reportedly be able to purchase one for a heavily discounted price of $179.99, which perhaps means the Google TV powered Dish set-top-boxes are not ready yet.

Personally, I am a little surprised by the price, and was expecting them to try and come a bit closer to the lower priced Apple TV and Boxee Box offerings, which retail for $99 and around $199 respectively. However, will a full browser and access to the Android Market starting in 2011, perhaps consumers will be willing to pay the higher premium.

    Even as a dish network employee when I look at that price of 300.00, I know that can be a little steep in price. But if the Revue is ordered through Dish Network you get 120.00 off the price, so you pay 179.00 for the Revue and that is with no commitment. If you chose to add the integration fee into that which allows two way communication between the dish receiver and the revue, it does have a 4.00 monthly fee. It def does have a lot of added benefits to it though. You can always check out the latest info at dish.com/googletv -Joe
