    I just logged in to the Android Market website on my PC and if you go to My Market Account and then Settings I see my Revue just got listed. Maker, Model and everything else is blank but it shows my registration date as the same date I first used my Revue back in January.


    This probably means that the Android 3.1 update is comming very very soon. I just checked my Revue and it is still running the same old Android 2.1 and I did a Check for Updates and it said there were no updates. Bummer.

    Notice attached images and circled items. I've searched for apps and no matter how many apps I try to look up they all say the same thing. I guess we won't know what apps you can install on Google TV till you actually open the Market App on your Google TV. Perhaps then Make and Model will get updated so that proper app compatibility can be checked.

    I had an extensive talk with Logitech on Friday.
    They said that the new Android OS will be released in late August,
    and that GoogleTV and the Logitech Revue will then have access to all of the Android market.

    That being said, let's just hope there will be some worthwhile Apps for this thing.
    As it is right now...I don't think it's worth it's weight in s**t.
    Even so, I went ahead and purchased one just because the manager assured me that the Apps for this devise should open it up quite a bit.
    Plus...I get tired of sitting at my desk when just doing general browsing.
    Sitting on my couch in front of a big screen will be alot better either way.
    I'm just so surprised that Logitech couldn't even make this thing have a simple save function,
    even if it was just for pictures/music and video.
    Seems to me if you can hook up an external HDD to play from,
    you should be able to save to it as well. :rolleyes:
    It shouldn't be too hard to make an App for THAT!
    Let's hope someone does.
    It should also be quite simple to be able to print a page via WIFI, but nothing for that yet either. :confused:
    It's those small types of things that really irritate me.
    Seems like that wouldn't be too much to ask for, even in the INITIAL RELEASE.

    Anyways...mine should arrive in a couple days.
    Would you guys mind posting some pros and cons for this device in the meantime?
    (other than the obvious of course) ;)

    Cheers.

    Yeah, I noticed this as well. That data was obviously there, but obviously leaking. Good that we know the Revue devices are linked and in marketplace, but they really did need to stop leaking it on the device list.

    It should only show up when we can use it.

    That appears to be the case for everyone lately, so I wouldn't worry about it...

    My guess is that Google turned on the Android Market for Google TV device when they sent out the Fishtank devices. I think the Android Market is designed to remove devices from the Market Devices List if those devices haven't checked in after a certain period of time (say 2 weeks). So since we don't have the Market app we weren't able to check in and thus after two week were were dropped. So I'm speculating that once we get the 3.1 update with the Market app then our devices will magically reappear in the Devices List. I wish I had a spare Android phone to connect to my Google account and then turn it off and wait the few weeks to see if it disappears. In the Android Market Devices List if you click on "Don't See Your Device?" you'll be taken to this link and bullet point #2 is what I'm using to deduce all this:
