    SAN FRANCISCO: Logitech on Wednesday unveiled the first "Google TV" boxes touted as a merging of online content and traditional television offerings.

    Logitech Revue boxes were priced at US$300 each and will be available in the United States by the end of October, according to the Swiss company specializing in keyboards, webcams and other peripherals for computers.

    "With our line of products for Google TV, Logitech will help redefine the user experience in the digital living room," said Logitech chief executive Gerald Quindlen.

    At a press event in San Francisco, Logitech demonstrated the boxes along with a palm-sized Mini Controller priced at US$130 and a TV camera accessory for video conferencing with a price tag of US$150.

    A keyboard that will be bundled with Revue boxes will be sold separately for US$100, according to Logitech.

    "Google TV combines the power of search, a full Web browser, and Android apps with the TV experience you know and love," said Mario Queiroz, vice president of product management for Google.

    "We're proud to be working with Logitech to launch the very first set of Google TV devices, helping you and me easily access great Web and TV content, all on the same HD screen."
