    Download Honeycomb Update for Logitech Google TV (Leaked Build)

    14 September 2011


    [​IMG]Google TV



    Google's entry into the internet television space comes in two set-top box flavors: Sony's blu-ray player/Google box, or the Logitech Revue box. The platform was a bit uninspired when it debuted last year, and Google has certainly been feeling the pain because of it. However, back at Google I/O, we also heard that Google is not going to abandon its TV baby. Rather, they are working on a big overhaul by way of Android Honeycomb.


    A leaked build of the Logitech Revue version of Honeycomb made its way to the net a couple of months ago, but was pretty unstable and far from complete. It was missing a lot of key apps, like Netflix, which made it fairly useless. Still, it was nice to see that it really was in development. Well, it's been leaked again and this time around it looks a lot more complete. There are a few things that still aren't up and running, but there are also some great features available. What is working? Netflix is there, as are most of the standard apps that came on the box. The look and feel is quite different, but a lot more polished. The Android market is present, and there are a handful of apps in it at the moment. Your selection is limited to TV apps only, which makes sense, but this was a feature not included in the last leak. Unfortunately, the market addition isn't quite finished. The search feature returns an error, as does trying to access "my apps". There are also some bugs and quirks to work through, but for the most part this is well on its way to completion.

    If anyone intends to try this, it is important to know that you have to upgrade from the previous 3.1 beta, and not from stock.. else, brick..

    Google TV Director Gives New ETA On Honeycomb Update
    October 6th, 2011





    [​IMG]
    Speaking at a Q&A session for the Connected TV panel during MIPCOM 2011, Google TV Director of Content Donagh O’Malley finally let the cat out of the bag regarding Google TV’s much anticipated Honeycomb update. He was quoted as saying,
    "What I can tell you about what’s coming up with Google TV, is version two is about to launch probably within the next three or four weeks."

    O’Malley also went on to say that that there are around 250 apps currently optimized for Google TV and when Google TV 2.0 finally goes live, we can expect a jump from 8 apps to 1,000 overnight. You can watch the full session in the video below (Donagh O’Malley begins speaking at the 36 minute mark and gives Honeycomb ETA at 57:50).


    If you take what he says as Bible, we can expect the Android 3.1 Honeycomb update just in time for the holidays. Coincidence that this lines up with the new version of Android Ice Cream Sandwich? It’s going to be a fun year.

    What is certain is that Google has leaked on the GTV community. GTV is just entertainment for a very few hard core true believers who want to load unofficial versions to impress each other.

    GTV will follow the lead of Google-411, which was discontinued. Google will spend millions and find that GTV doesn't fit it's business model, that is there isn't any way for Google to monitize it.
