Logitech Revue Google TV Powered Set-top Box Gets Torn Down, Shows Off Netbook Like Internals

October 26, in Set Box

Google is looking to really make a mark on the content consuming world with their Google TV platform. This platform, if you aren’t aware, will power everything from set-top boxes to full fledged televsions and will allow consumers to do things like surf the web, watch YouTube videos, access popular content distribution services like Netflix and much more. However, seeing how Google TV is just a platform, it’s going to be up to the hardware manufacturers to really market the platform and get it into the homes of consumers.

Luckily, Google has managed to acquire a pretty decent line up of partners with companies like Logitech and Sony on board. If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know that Sony has a whole line up of Google TV powered televisions that require no set-top box at all. However, if you’re not willing to part with a large sum of cash for a brand new television, perhaps a Google TV powered set-top box such as the Logitech Revue will better suit you.

While we’ve heard quite a bit of the Logitech Revue in terms of its software, we haven’t heard too much about its hardware. Luckily, the set-top box has been torn apart today with its innards thoroughly examined. The verdict? Well, the Logitech Revue features a 1.2Ghz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of DDR3 RAM and 5GB of NAND flash storage.

As you can see, these specs aren’t too much different than a traditional netbook but good luck finding one of those with Google TV installed.

Anyone out there looking to jump on the Google TV wagon?
